EdBusseyEd Bussey

Ed Bussey has been afforded the accolade of musical genius by many artists who have enjoyed the pleasure of both his musical arrangements, accompaniment and direction.

Ed studied A-level Music, History and Physics at Christ the King Sixth Form in 2002, before going on to study Music at Birmingham University and Musical Theatre Direction at the Royal Academy.

A truly outstanding pianist in his own right, Ed has to be heard to be savoured as he makes this iconic instrument his very own in delivering outstanding jazz compositions, swing classics or indeed gentle smooth listening.

Standing testament of his talent, Ed has toured with the likes of David Essex and in so doing has learnt his craft well, he genuinely presents a very special performance.

Ed is currently the assistant musical director of Motown the Musical in the West End before that he was assistant musical director for the first Jersey Boys UK tour. Other credits as assistant: Footloose; Oklahoma!; The Snowman. As musical director: Le Gateau Chocolat; I Need A Doctor (all UK tours).

A remarkable young man and most certainly one of the nicest guys one could ever meet, Ed Bussey is totally professional and recognises the absolute necessity to deliver a quality performance on behalf of both the client and audience.

 

Alex LAlex Iacovitti

It is not merely just his name that gives away Alex Iacovitti’s Italian roots.

Alex left Christ the King in 2014 and signed for Nottingham Forest.

The languid, cultured defender’s calm performances for Forest’s under-18 side earned him a handful of opportunities for the under-21s last season.

A central defender who can also slot in at left back, Iacovitti stood out in more experienced company in that under-21 play-off semi-final against Swansea.

Iacovitti has already represented Scotland at under-17 level and is now only 18, so patience will be required where the teenager is concerned.

But he performed in the manner of a player with far more experience against the Welsh side, making numerous timely interceptions and challenges thanks to his astute reading of the game.

Iacovitti, who does also qualify to play for Italy, only started four times for the under-21 side, but has made swift progress in the final months of the 2014 – 15 campaign, after making himself indispensable to the under-18 side.

Comfortable with the ball at his feet, Iacovitti is more than capable of carrying the ball out of defence.

And, while it is perhaps too much to expect him to make a significant impact on the first team at some point this season, he is a player that is generating some considerable excitement behind the scenes at the club.

 

Jordan Bowery

Jordan Nathaniel Bowery (born 2 July 1991) plays for Crewe Alexandra, as a striker.

After leaving Christ the King in 2008, he began his career with Derby County, Bowery had an extended spell at Chesterfield, coming through their youth team to make over 100 appearances in all competitions for them. While with Chesterfield he also had a short loan spell with Barrow.

Bowery moved to Aston Villa in 2012;  in 2014 he had a short loan spell with Doncaster Rovers. He moved to Rotherham United in June 2014 before joining Crewe Alexandra in July 2017.

 

TempestGreg Tempest

Greg Tempest was offered a professional contract at Meadow Lane following two impressive years in the Magpies’ youth team after leaving CtK in 2010.
 The creative midfielder, who is comfortable in the centre or on the left, has strong links with the club as the grandson of Notts legend Bill Corkhill who made 284 league appearances for Notts either side of the Second World War.
Tempest officially followed in his grandfather’s footsteps, when he was introduced as a substitute in the March 2013 fixture with Scunthorpe United at Meadow Lane.  A week later, in a 0-0 draw away at Swindon Town, he made his full debut and impressed over 60 minutes at the County Ground. 
Tempest’s continued progress was highlighted by his call-up to the Northern Ireland under-21 squad during the close season.
 
 

Laura-JayneLaura-Jayne O’Neill

Laura-Jayne left CtK in June 2014 having played for Nottingham Forest before the Notts County Ladies Development team was formed for the 2013/14 season ahead of Notts’ inclusion in the FAWSL.

The young left back is an exciting talent and has shown a lot of promise in her performances for the Notts County first team.

Laura left Notts County as a result of the ladies team being disbanded.  She now plays for Nottingham Forest Ladies FC.

 

 

 

 

Cairan-Keane

Ciaran Keane

Keane arrived at Meadow Lane after impressing on trial at the back end of the 2013/14 campaign.

The Nottingham-born left-back is known for his tough tackling and offers plenty going forward with a dangerous cross.

Following a spell with Derby County at Academy level, the defender continued his development with Wolverhampton Wanderers.  Keane, who is capped for Republic of Ireland at Under-16 level, now plays for Kidderminster Harriers.
