Meet the Coach: Mr Jamie Ricketts

I feel very privileged to be leading this football programme for Lewis School of English. I’ve had amazing coaching experiences in the past whilst working abroad, so it’s great to be able to offer this in my local city of Winchester to students from other countries.

I work for a semi-professional club as Head of Youth Development. This allows me to monitor players’ pathways into men’s football and give assistance when needed. I also work as a grassroots scout for Southampton Football Club. My qualifications are in both coaching and talent identification, which allows me to communicate many different factors of the game. I believe this program will offer a fantastic experience for students to understand how we coach, study and play football in England.
