Jim Rodwell

Born 20 November 1970 (Age 25 at debut)

Position: Defender

(Diamonds player #62)

Total appearances 208 – 11 goals

(157 League, 17 FA Cup, 13 FA Trophy, 7 League Cup, 2 League Trophy, 8 Hillier Senior Cup, 3 Maunsell Cup, 1 Conference Shield)

Debut:

17 August 1996 (Away Altrincham)

Jim was born in Lincoln, and won an apprenticeship with Lincoln City, but the club’s relegation from the Football League led to uncertainty at Sincil Bank, so he elected to sign for Darlington’s youth set up. He went on to make just a single start for the first team, but was released in May 1989. He went to play for Sabah FA in Malaysia for a short period, and after unable to progress in League football, dropped down into the non league scene. He played for Hednesford Town and was with Nuneaton Borough for two seasons before joining Halesowen Town in August 1995. He spent just one season with the Yeltz before attracting the attention of Diamonds manager Roger Ashby. He signed for Diamonds in May 1996 for a £40,000 fee prior to their first season in the Conference. The central defender was a popular figure at Nene Park, and picked up two “Player of the Season” awards during his 5½ years at the club.

He made 30 League appearances in the Conference title winning season of 2000/2001, and went on to make 208 appearances in total. He found it difficult to gain a first team place following the arrival of former Northern Ireland International Barry Hunter, and went on loan to Dagenham & Redbridge on 18 January 2002, before returning and transferring to Boston United on 15 February and helping them into the Football League.

Jim spent the next season at Farnborough Town, before brief spells with Aldershot Town, Tamworth and Havant & Waterlooville, before returning to Boston United as caretaker manager in January 2004. Following the appointment and return of Steve Evans, he took a role as Director of Football at the club. In June 2006, he became Chairman of Boston United, but resigned in July 2007. On 11 February 2010, he became Chief Executive at Notts County.
