Bio

Coach Nigel Boulton was born in Cardiff, Wales where he played for Sully A.F.C., a three-time Wales Premier League champion and three time Senior Cup Winner. In 1988 he joined the coaching ranks with Sully and took the club to second in its division. He also led the South Wales representative (All-Star) team to back-to-back J.J. Baily Trophy wins against English league opposition in both 1988 and 1989 and was appointed a District Coach for the F.A. of Wales during that time.

 

In 1990, Boulton was hired by Soccer USA and he moved to the United States where he later became the first full-time executive director and director of coaching for the Arkansas State Soccer Association. Bill Clinton appointed him to the Governor's Council on Physical Fitness & Sports in 1994. During his time in Arkansas he part-owned and managed the USISL franchise the Arkansas A's from 1992-94 until he left for Boston in 1997 to coach in the USL 'A' League with the Worcester Wildfire. At that time the Wildfire were the farm team for Major League Soccer's New England Revolution. The following year Boulton moved back south where he became the Mississippi Youth Soccer Association's statewide Director of Coaching. In March 2003 William Carey University (then College) hired Boulton as its men's soccer coach. He was named G.C.A.C. Coach of the Year in 2004 and his team won the G.C.A.C. Championship in 2007. The following year, 2008, he recorded his 50th collegiate career win as his team won the G.C.A.C regular season title and he was again named G.C.A.C. Coach of the Year. In 2009 he was named GCAC Coach of the Year for a third time as his team again took the regular season title and finishing ranked #9 in the NAIA National Poll and qualifying for the National Championships as they did again in 2010. 2011 saw the team ranked #4 in the national poll and reach the semi-final of the national tournament with Boulton named a NSCAA Regional Coach of the Year.
