INTRODUCING: Nick Dingwall
Part of our backroom staff series, this profile is on our talented goalkeeping coach
Goalkeeper coach Nick Dingwall joined the club shortly after the beginning of last season, proudly making the step up from his previous posts at Leeds United Girls Centre of Excellence and York City Academy.
The former Northern Counties-standard keeper - who apparently appears in Championship Manager 2001-02 as a player – is responsible for looking after all the development and first team squad goalkeepers from training through to match days.
He says: “The history, success and opportunities that the Belles have given to girls and women footballers over many years from juniors up to full internationals is brilliant.
It’s all within a club that prides itself on a real 'family' environment both on and off the pitch, which really makes the club stand out.”
As well as his time at York and Leeds, where he reached two FA Women’s Premier League Cup finals, Dingwall was part of the Harrogate Railway men’s coaching team that put together a remarkable run to the FA Cup second round in 2007, with their narrow 3-2 defeat to League Two Mansfield Town broadcast live on Match of the Day.
