A further huge appointment ahead of new era for All Golds

The All Golds are continuing their off-field improvements with another huge appointment, Rob Nickolay, who is the former head of Academy at Super League side, Hull FC.

Rob and recently appointed Danny Wilson worked very closely together at Hull FC and are looking forward to linking up again at the All Golds as non-executive directors.

Joe David, the All Golds’ CEO, had this to say about the appointment,

“Being able to welcome just one highly talented and experienced individual to our board would have been a huge step but to add two is simply incredible. Rob is a vastly experienced academy director with an MSc and PGDip in elite sports’ coaching along with becoming the youngest coach to achieve the RFL’s Level 4 coaching licence. His experience at Hull FC and Hull Kingston Rovers will add great value to our organisation and coaching staff.”

In addition to his coaching ability, Nickolay is also a lead tutor and lecturer for the Rugby Football League’s national coach education programmes.

His educational experience will be a huge boost to Jay Woodley, the All Golds’ Schools’ and Community Clubs’ Development Officer and they will work very closely to build the already thriving community and education offering.

David continued,

“To have someone of Rob’s calibre and experience will no doubt add huge value to our organisation as we continue to grow and build our academy and schools’ programmes. We are all delighted with this appointment.”

Rob Nickolay highlighted the club’s vision and passion as a core reason for joining,

“I am really excited to be joining the All Golds. The vision and passion of the organisation is compelling and I look forward to contributing to this, both on and off the field. I have seen first hand the work and structures the board have worked so hard to establish, along with the vital work done within the local community. From my previous experiences of working in both talent development and coach education I’m keen to get to work and engage with the All Golds’ board members, stakeholders and the wider community.”
