NICO - GETTING RELEASED SCHOLARSHIP PLAYERS BACK ON TRACK
"If you have just been released from Elite football this isn't the end of the journey, it's the beginning of your new career. I firmly believe this." - NICO Player Development coach, Mark 'NICO' Nicholls.
Mark signed as a professional footballer for Chelsea at the age of 18, playing in the Premier League and the Champions League alongside global superstars such as David Beckham and Franco Baresi.
Now a professional coach, Mark specialises in working one-to-one with released Elite level players. Focusing on aftercare, Mark takes an 'arm around the shoulder' approach to rebuilding confidence and strengthening the areas in need of improvement. NICO have also partnered with Alpha Physiotheraphy who help to manage the conditioning and recovery needs of professional athletes.
Mark explains, "now is the time for you to reconnect with the game. By remaining focused and committed you can still achieve. Together we will push forward and work hard to improve, here at NICO we have built an environment where these improvements can be recognised and opportunities be reopened at league and non-league levels."
