Who is Nick Pope?

Nicholas David Pope, better known as Nick Pope, is an English professional football goalkeeper who currently plays for Burnley in the Premier League.

The 27-year-old is also one of the 23 players on the England National Team for the 2018 World Cup.

Pope is still known as “The Wall.” Nicholas David Pope was born on April 19, 1992, in the English town and civil parish of Soham to his mother Bridget Pope, and father David Pole.

The shot-stopper is a genuine English citizen. According to a study conducted to establish Nick Pope’s family background, he is 50-60% English, just like most people of western England.

Nick Pope’s father, David Pope, is a successful farmer. He had been in the sustainable business of mechanized farming for 41 years. Bridget is the proud mother of a talented goalkeeper.

She is a former teacher at King’s Ely School, which Nick is thought to have attended. Bridget, like David, is supportive and has a close relationship with her kid.

Josh is the brother of the Burnley legend. Josh is a great goalie who, at the time of writing, plays for Soham. He is said to have the ability to perform at a greater level than he currently does.

However, because he is getting older, the transition to top-flight football may be difficult for him.

Fortunately for the boy, his parents were well-off middle-class people with agricultural interests. They were also ardent football supporters. As a result, it was only natural for them to believe in his sporting ability. Even at their advanced age, Nick Pope’s parents remain identical and vibrant.

Nick Pope’s parents made sure he had a season ticket to Ipswich FC by the time he was seven years old. It wasn’t long before he imagined himself playing under sevens for The Blues and dreaming of making it big in the game.

The football genius spent the majority of his childhood in Ipswich. Pope, like most of the lads with whom he began his trip, had already advanced through the ranks of the club at the age of 16.

Moving on to The Wall’s personal life, not many people are aware that the goalkeeper is dating Shannon Horlock, the daughter of Kevin Horlock, a former Manchester City player.

When the lovebirds first met and started dating, not much is known. However, we are aware that Kevin Horlock’s girlfriend is extremely supportive.

During the 2018 World Cup in Russia, she was even in the stands to cheer on her better half. There’s little doubt that lovebirds who haven’t had any out-of-wedlock children will take their relationship to the next level in the near future.

Pope’s net worth is believed to be around £3 million . Nick Pope’s current contract with Burnley Football Club pays him £1,001,000 per year as an English Premier League player.

Following Tom Heaton’s injury, Pope rose to prominence and helped Burnley stay in the Premier League.

He was previously paid £15K per week, but will now be paid £30K per week, totaling £1.5 million per year. Burnley offered him a three-year contract worth £2.34 million.

Pope stand 75 inches tall and weighs 76 kilograms. He has 95.2k follwers on Instagram and 23.1k followers on Twitter.
