Nicky Eaden


Where is Nicky Eaden now?

Barnsley legend Nicky Eaden retired from playing in 2009 after a spell as player-coach at non league side Kettering Town working alongside Mark Cooper.

When Cooper was appointed manager at Peterborough United in 2009, Eaden joined him as part of his coaching team and stayed on at the club when Cooper was sacked after only 13 games.

After leaving Peterborough United by mutual consent in 2010, Eaden had short spells as assistant to former Barnsley team-mate Andy Liddell at Rotherham United and then as assistant manager at Kettering Town.

A UEFA Pro Licence holder, Nicky Eaden then moved onto Leicester City where he spent three and a half years as an Assistant Professional Development Coach working with the club’s junior professionals and scholars.

Eaden left Leicester City in February 2016 to join former Barnsley team-mate Neil Redfearn as his assistant manager at Rotherham United.

He left Rotherham after only four months by mutual consent after assisting the club to maintain its Championship status.

Eaden was back in football in July 2016 when he was appointed as Coventry City’s new Senior Professional Development Coach, taking charge of the club’s under 21’s side.

In September 2017, Eaden was on the move once again and joined League Two side Chesterfield as manager Jack Lester’s assistant.

The pair played together at Nottingham Forest for a couple of years in the mid-2000’s.
