First Team Manager

Nick Daws




Date of birth








Nick Daws arrived at Glanford Park in late 2014.

Daws left his position as Queens Park Rangers academy’s head of coaching and coach education to join the Iron as first team coach then. 

He enjoyed a 13-year playing career in the Football League, most notably as a midfielder at Bury before periods with Rotherham United and Grimsby Town. 

Following his retirement from playing in 2005, Daws joined the coaching staff at Rotherham United - as a fitness coach before becoming first team coach and aiding Mark Robins in his reign with the Millers. 

Daws joined Barnsley in the same role, when Robins was appointed as boss at Oakwell - before departing when Robins left in 2011. 

Daws started the 2012–13 season in a new role as professional development coach at QPR before taking on the role of head of coaching there in September 2014. 

He departed Loftus Road to rejoin Robins at the Iron 13 months later and made a big impact when in temporary charge in January and February 2016 following Robins' exit, winning four games out of five. 

He continued as manager for a further month before Alexander was appointed, and was then assistant manager for the rest of that season until Chris Lucketti's arrival. 

Following Alexander's departure in March 2018, Daws was installed as the club's interim manager until the end of the 2017-18 campaign, with Andy Dawson as his assistant.

He was officially appointed as manager on May 25th, 2018.
