Nick Pope Soccer Goalkeeper
Nick Pope (born 19 April 1992) is an English footballer who plays for Charlton Athletic as a goalkeeper. Nick Pope began his career at the Ipswich Town academy and was with Ipswich between the ages of 10 and 16. Following his release by Ipswich, he joined non-league Suffolk-based side Bury Town in 2008. Having challenged and temporarily replaced Marcus Garnham, Pope proved he was capable at that level when he wore the number 1 shirt for Bury Town for a number of first-team matches after initially debuting for the side at just 16 years of age. Bury Town Manager, Richard Wilkins, described Nick as "the most naturally-talented player to progress through the ranks at the West Suffolk Sports Academy and Bury Town" and said “I honestly think Nick can go all the way to the top." Nick Pope was also a member of the West Suffolk College squad and has represented an England Colleges squad. On 24 May 2011, Charlton Athletic announced the signing of Nick Pope after being spotted by scouts during a 2-1 win over Billericay Town. He was then invited to a trial at Charlton.
