U9 Squad


Hi, I’m Nick, U9 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!
