Hi, I’m Nick, U8 Coach.
I am married to Sophie , dad to 5 children 8-21 in age. I came here from London 11 years ago and work as HR Manager for an international Bank. I am a published children’s book author and my lifes hobby has been football. I played amateur level through primary and secondary school years, uni and afterwards until 35. I was a 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! However 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? Its seeing the kids come off the pitch happy and wanting to train/play again as soon as possible!
Coach: Nick Jones
Assistant Coach: Brett Robinson
Our son has played at Ropsley Colts since joining the under 6s. He has grown up with the coaches and the other Colts. The camaraderie and inclusion in a safe, fun and supportive environment is great to see!
