The Bio

Coach Jimmy came on board as a partner with Andy in 2018 to help grow the business and develop their shared love of sport and physical education. The two have known each other for over 10 years and met during their time in the USA, where they both lived and worked as football coaches in New Jersey.

Jimmy shares the company’s vision for the future and holds the same values for using sport as a way to help kids grow, learn and develop holistically. He is motivated, experienced and passionate about both sport and coaching children to reach their potential.

Jimmy grew up sport mad and subsequently studied the subject at university. He was coaching throughout his time in Gloucestershire, but moving to America in the summer of 2007 really contributed to shaping his outlook on life and how physical education can be used positively to help people. Although he then spent the next 10 years working and living abroad in Thailand and Portugal, Jimmy and Andy never lost contact and his return to the UK prompted the two to ‘team up’ and use AJB Sports in Education as the vehicle to help children develop, learn and grow through sport.
