Nicky Summerbee

Former Swindon Town, Manchester City, Sunderland, and Bradford City Footballer.


Hailing from a family of football legends, it is no surprise that Nicky became a professional footballer. His father, Mike; Grandfather, George; and Great Uncle, Gordon, all played professional football and Nicky followed in their footsteps when making his debut for Swindon Town at the age of 18.

Following 112 appearances for Swindon between 1989 and 1994, Nicky joined Manchester City where he played over 130 games for The Blues.

After his spell at Maine Road, Nicky moved to Sunderland where he helped the club gain promotion to the Premier League in his first season, where the stats proved he was a better crosser of the ball than David Beckham with an accuracy of 36% compared to Beck's 27%!

Nicky remained at the Stadium of Light until 2001 before going on to play for Bolton, Nottingham Forest, Leicester City and Bradford before retiring in 2006.

Since finishing on the pitch, Nicky has undertaken various work in the media, including Sky Sports News and presenting Masters Football on Sky Sports 1. Also commentating and interviewing for Talk Sport and Five Live, Nicky is a well recognised and respected former professional.

He has also appeared in a 'celebrity cook-off' the Five Star Scanner Appeal evening at Panacea restaurant in Alderley Edge and make a great guest at just about any occasion.

Nicky is a great after dinner speaker, he can also be booked along side dad Mike as a double act.
