Jerren Kendall Nixon (born June 25, 1973) is a Trinidad and Tobago football player, who currently plays as a forward for North East Stars in his country's Professional League.

Life and career[edit]

Born in the village of Morvant, just outside Port of Spain, Nixon began his career in Trinidad playing for ECM Motown before moving to Scotland in 1993, joining Dundee United. Impressive early form for the Tannadice Park side prompted then manager Ivan Golac to declare he would one day be worth £15 million. In 1994 he helped the club to win the Scottish Cup, but left a year later for £200,000 after they were relegated from the Premier Division.[1] He spent the next eight years of his career in Swiss football, with FC Zürich, Yverdon-Sport FC and FC St. Gallen.

In 2003 Nixon returned to Trinidad after a trial with Dallas Burn failed to lead to a contract. Since joining North East Stars he has been successful, winning the league title in 2004, and finishing as top scorer. In September 2005, he was appointed as interim coach of the club.

Nixon has represented his country at every level from Under-17 to full international. He made his full debut for the Trinidad and Tobago national team in 1993, and made his last appearance to date in 2004.
