Where is Nick Barmby now?

One of only a handful of players to have scored for six different Premier League clubs, Nick Barmby finally decided to hang up his boots in 2012 at the age of 37.

Playing for 20 years he racked up over 500 senior club appearances scoring over 100 goals as well as playing for the England national side between 1995 and 2001 winning 23 caps.

He was also an FA Cup winner, League Cup winner and UEFA Cup winner during his time with Liverpool.

Having already taken on a player-coach role at Hull City, Barmby stepped up to take over first-team affairs in 2011 when manager Nigel Pearson left for Leicester City.

After a decent start to his managerial career, he took the job on a full-time basis at the start of 2012 but was sacked just five months later after a fallout with the club’s owners.

Since then he has coached at Wyke College in Hull as well as helping out at Barton Town Old Boys where his son was the side’s conditioning coach.

In March 2019 Barmby made a return to senior football when he joined the coaching staff at Scunthorpe United who were being managed at the time by his former Hull City team-mate Andy Dawson.
