Norwich Career: Under-11s (1997/98)
Current Club: Newport County (Conference South)
Date of Birth: 25/09/1986
Nationality: English


Nick Skelton, from Benfleet, Essex, was with Norwich City's Under-11s schoolboys side in 1997/98. He later switched to Charlton Ahtletic's youth team but was released in 2003. After a brief trial with Luton Town, he joined Southend United as a scholar in their centre of excellence. Impressing those who watched him, the central defender was described as the new "Jonathan Woodgate".

A debilitating injury caused Skelton to miss much of the start of the 2004/5 campaign, and set back what had, up to then, been speedy progress. A hurried return wrought havoc after an aggravation of the complaint in September against Leyton Orient, and it was not until the end of the calendar year that he was ready to return. he ended the season with 5 youth team appearances and 2 reserve team run-outs.

Nick joined Chelmsford City in February 2006. He then moved on to Great Wakering Rovers before joining Aveley in late October 2006. In March 2007, he joined Redbridge.

In June 2008, Nick joined his former Redbridge manager Dean Holdsworth at Blue Square South side Newport County
