Midfielder: Nicky Smith
England Police football captain Nicky Smith, who also plays for Braintree, is tackling a new role as a beat officer. The 30-year-old policeman — former professional footballer with Colchester United and Southend — captained the England Police team this season to a win over Wales and a draw with Scotland, at Anfield.
PC Smith, who lives in Braintree, was a member of the Colchester team which won the league and FA Trophy in 1992. Today the father of two is enjoying his new found police career, but is still managing to fit in football. A Suffolk police officer for the last 30 months he has just taken over the town centre beat in Haverhill.
