Former PASE academy player Charles Nichol returned to Boreham Wood in the summer of 2017. Nichol had recently completed his UEFA B coaching badges with the FAI (Irish football Association).
The coach combines his role as First Team Analyst with a coaching role in the famed PASE academy. Charles originally joined the club at 16-years-old, where he played in the PASE academy, while completing a BTEC in sport.
His rise through the coaching ranks, and subsequent return to the club, is yet another success story for PASE.
Having completed his time in PASE, Nichol moved to Loughborough in order to study for the next stage of his career, a BTEC Level Three Sports Diploma.
Alongside him on the course in Ireland were numerous budding coaches, including former Leicester City defender Sean St Ledger. Nichol passed with flying colours, before returning to Meadow Park this summer.
His progression proves that PASE offers its players a vast variety of different routes into football, whether it be playing, educational or coaching.
