Tim Stimpson enjoyed a career in top-flight for some of Europe’s most dominated clubs. Perhaps best known for his spell at Leicester Tigers, Tim played an elemental role in the side’s rampant success in both domestic and continental competition. Tim also played 19 times for England and represented the British Lions on the 1997 tour to South Africa.
Joining the Tigers from Newcastle Falcons in 1998, Tim became the side’s principal goal kicker in 1999 after the retirement of Joel Stransky. Tim would become Tigers royalty thanks to his efforts in the Heineken Cup for the side, beginning in 2001, where Tim’s extremely difficult try conversion took his side’s lead to four points at 34-30 over Stade Francais, meaning only a try would stop the Tigers from lifting the trophy.
He then went on to play for Leeds Tykes, before hanging up his boots in 2006 to pursue a career in business performance coaching. Tim also introduces suppliers for consumers and businesses who would like to reduce carbon emissions.
Tim’s experience in both playing and coaching gives him an insight into both careers, making for great anecdotal stories about the highs and lows of professional sport, on and off the field.
