Nicky Byrne is best known for his role in the boyband Westlife. What most people don’t know is that Nicky was signed by Leeds United Football Club as a goalie when he was 15 years old. Though he displayed great talent, he was eventually released from his contract at 17 as he just didn’t grow tall enough! Nicky’s passion for soccer has never dulled and presenting Football’s Next Star brings him, in his words, ‘full circle’.
