U8 Squad


Coach : Nick Jones
Assistant Coach :

Hi there I’m Nick…married to Sophie , dad to 5 children 8-21 in age. Came here from London 11 years ago. I work as HR Manager for an international Bank. Am a published children’s book author. My life hobby has been football. Played amateur level through primary and secondary school years, uni and afterwards until 35. Keen spectator at Spurs and Forest matches until my 3 sons started playing and joined Ropsley Colts.

Did I ever think I would be a grassroots football coach – No  – but I knew from my life experiences  and knowledge of football that I could offer a highly enjoyable football experience from day one. I am continuously learning,  look at training material , watching other Ropsley coaches,  using hints and tips.

What do I enjoy most about coaching  –  seeing the kids come off the pitch happy and wanting to train/play again as soon as possible!
