New Head Coach

I am delighted to announce that Simon Pickering has been appointed as the new Head Coach for Knutsford Vikings.

Simon is a UKCC L3 qualified swimming coach and has been involved in swimming all of his life – both as a competitive swimmer and in a coaching capacity. His last position was as Director of Swimming at a large British school in the Middle East and prior to that as a full time, head coach in Suffolk. He was also a squad coach to several clubs in the Midland area.

Simon is also a capable swimming teacher and has worked in many organisations teaching a range of abilities including adults.

During his time in Suffolk in 2009, he achieved international success when he coached 21 year old Stephanie Bird to a gold medal at the IPC European Swimming Championship. Two years later, he achieved his first ‘world record’ holder, when Jessica-Jane Applegate broke the women’s disability S14 50m freestyle record. Jessica later went on to win gold at the London 2012 Para-Olympics.

Simon and his family moved to Northwich in July 2015 and he is currently studying an MA in Education, with a view to becoming a qualified primary school teacher.

Please make Simon very welcome, when he starts his new position on Tuesday 27th June.
