Iain Jenkins (born 24 November 1972) is an English-born former footballer who represented Northern Ireland at international level. He is assistant manager of Cowdenbeath.


Playing career

Born in Whiston (then in Lancashire, but now part of Merseyside), Jenkins began his career with Everton and made five league appearances for the Toffees. After a short loan spell at Bradford City, Jenkins moved to Chester City, where he would stay with the Blues five years. He recovered from a car accident in November 1995 to play again within five months and went on to often captain the side before leaving for Dundee United in March 1998. By this point, Jenkins was part of the Northern Ireland squad – making him Chester's first full international since Andy Holden more than a decade earlier.

Injuries restricted Jenkins to just 14 league appearances in two years for Dundee United. Following his release from United in 2000, Jenkins moved south to Shrewsbury Town and then back to Chester City, where he ended his playing career with a handful of appearances.

Coaching and management

Following his retirement, Jenkins became Chester youth coach, before moving to Scottish Junior Football Eastern Region North Division side Broughty Athletic in 2004. After a year there as coach, he became assistant manager at Dundee North End in June 2005, before becoming manager in June 2006. Shortly after leaving his post in May 2008, Jenkins was appointed manager of Tayport,[1] leaving in August 2009 to become assistant manager at Cowdenbeath.[2]
