NICO - COACHING THE NEXT GENERATION
Mark 'NICO' Nicholls fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a professional footballer for Chelsea, playing in the Premier League and the Champions League alongside global superstars such as David Beckham and Franco Baresi.
Now Mark, a father with a football mad son himself, is a professional coach specialising in working with players of all abilities, from the youngest juniors through to Academy level and Elite players.
Mark's personable style and extensive knowledge of the game lead to fun and inspirational coaching sessions, whether they be one-to-one or with groups of 15 to 20 boys and girls.
Mark explains, "at junior level it is important to deliver on their need for fun, enjoyment and friendship whilst also building their ability to listen, experience structure and grow in confidence. There is nothing more rewarding than to pass on your passion for the game to the next generation and to watch them succeed to the best of their ability."
