Founder and Managing Director Of 1st Touch Football Coaching Nadim Akhtar (George) runs Xtra Time Kidz Club from the Holywell Community Centre.

Nadim believes in “getting the best out of aspiring sports athletes to reach their full potential.”

Football is his passion and the reason for starting his own coaching service was to pass his experience and knowledge onto the children of our local community.

In 2012 Nadim started sports coaching for young people and he now manages three different clubs as well as providing local PPA and sports coaching to over 700+ children across thirty schools in the Hertfordshire area.

Xtra Time is a breakfast, after school and holiday club provision offering quality out of school childcare services in Watford and its surrounding areas - the perfect solution for parents who need that Xtra Time for their children in education. This service will be back up and running as soon as the current lockdown allows.

Nadim has been interviewed recently by the BBC on race and racism in sport, and you can listen to the interview here (50mins in) on BBC Sounds.
