Former professional footballer, Jordan Snodin, has become the new franchisee for Kixx Goole & Selby and vows to make a huge impact on the local community.
29 year old, Jordan, carries a familiar name with knowledgeable football fans, with the Snodin family being heavily involved in top league football during the late 80s and early 90s.
Father, Ian Snodin, is a former captain of Leeds Utd, and also a title winner with Everton in 1987 when the Premier League was formerly Football League One. Jordan’s Uncle, Glynn Snodin, played for Doncaster Rovers, Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds Utd.
Jordan followed in the Snodin family footsteps and had thirst to play football from an early age which led to signing a scholarship with Leeds Utd and eventually a professional contract. He was released by the Yorkshire club in 2013 before going onto play for a number of non-league clubs.
Our new Kixx Franchisee may have taken a different path from his father and uncle on the football pitch, but his passion for the game remains deep-rooted. Over the last 8 years, he has carved out a successful career for himself, thriving both as a football agent and as a highly qualified coach.
Now Jordans football journey has led him to become the proud owner of Kixx Goole & Selby and he is now looking forward to helping make a positive difference to the lives of children and supporting the local communities.
Kixx Goole & Selby, established in 2019, began with four academy venues and has since been coaching a significant number of children on a weekly basis.
Jordan is confident that he can take the academies to new levels and that 2024 will be biggest and best year yet for its current and future members following the ownership change.
He said: “I am absolutely delighted to be the new franchise owner and lead coach for the Kixx Goole & Selby Academies.
“Whilst I have always loved playing the game, what inspires me even more is coaching and helping other people on their journey. Not just coaching children to be better footballers, but more importantly helping children become better people, teaching skills that are not only vital for on the pitch, but off the pitch too.
“It’s more important that our next generation have a healthy attitude towards getting active and this starts with making sure children are enjoying the learning process.
“The previous academy owner did a wonderful job with our current academies in the Goole and Selby areas, and now it’s my turn and my opportunity to build on the excellent foundations and to make 2024 the best year yet for children in the area.”
