Our very own superwoman Amanda Nicol

Amanda Nicol Sports Award winner 2018

We are delighted to announce that our very own superwoman Amanda Nicol has been awarded as South Ayrshire’s Coach of the Year 2018 at this week’s Sports Awards!!
If you have ever been involved with AUFA’s Women and Girls Club you will know Amanda as a stalwart of the club. Amanda initially got involved with the Academy over ten years ago when her two daughters Jennifer and Eleanor started playing football, and when the coach of the U9’s moved onto pastures new, Amanda picked up the baton and hasn’t looked back since.

Over the years Amanda has nurtured our younger age groups to the point where we now have over thirty five players at U9 and U7 levels.
Amanda attends fun four and fun fives festivals with her teams every Sunday, while mentoring four of our senior players in their coaching delivery, at both matches and Monday night training.
On top of all that, Amanda also volunteers her time to being a member of the Women and Girls Club board, as well as supporting and organising all of our vital fundraising activities.
In her ten years with us, Amanda has been a fantastic role model for all of the young players who she has supported throughout the years, and we would like to thank her for her commitment, hard work, support and enthusiasm throughout the last decade, from everyone at Ayr United Football Academy.
