Coach Jim

First Kicks Coach

I joined First Kicks from Billericay Town in January 2013 and I have had the pleasure of working with some very talented players during this time.  Coaching football is very rewarding and although it presents its own challenges, I do get great pleasure from seeing players develop week by week.  My passion for football allows me to take a break from my day job looking after my clients as a Relationship Manager within Financial Services where I have worked since 2008.  I married my Partner Vicki in April 2014 & I'm the proud dad of Ellie-Mae & Lily-Rose, my twin girls who are aged 5 and baby boy Bobby who is 1 years old.

Coach Scott

First Kicks Coach

My name is Scott and I’m 20 years old. I am a coach at First Kicks and Chelsea FC Foundation. I have been coaching at First kicks since I was 14. First kicks gave me my first opportunity to coach and I find it really rewarding and have enjoyed every minute of it. I love the challenge that working with this age group brings.

I hold an FA level 2 coaching badge. I have also completed the FA child protection course and I am first aid qualified.

There is nothing better than seeing young players with a smile on their face and we guarantee at First kicks that everybody goes home happy...…And you never know when the next little Messi will come along!
