English soccer player Cole Palmer is making headlines after scoring an equalizer against Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup held on August 17. Consequently, soccer fans around the globe are curious to know everything related to him, including his early background and his parents.

Born to parents with diverse origins, Cole Palmer grew up with his little sister in Manchester, United Kingdom.

Like every kid in his locality, Palmer began playing soccer quite early and was already playing at EPL club Manchester City’s academy when he was eight.

Palmer names his dad as his early inspiration and thinks he probably would not have played the game if his dad was not a soccer player.

Cole Jermaine Palmer, better known as Cole Palmer, has played club soccer for Manchester City since 2019. The promising attacking midfielder debuted for the club’s first team on September 30, 2020.

A year later, Palmer, the professional soccer player, scored his first senior goal in a match against Wycombe Wanderers in the EFL Cup.

However, he is notable for his recent two goals against Arsenal and Sevilla FC, respectively, at the 2023 FA Community Shields and UEFA Super Cup Finals. 

Cole Palmer’s Parents: Jermaine And Marie

Cole Palmer was born to his parents, Jermaine and Marie Palmer, on May 6, 2002, in Wythenshawe, Manchester. Many sites on the Internet have mentioned Janet Palmer as his mother, but it does not seem to be true.

While his mother is British, his dad’s family is originally from Saint Kitts and Nevis. Despite living in the United Kingdom for years, Jermaine is proud of his Kittian heritage.

Every time Nike offers Cole his new apparel and boots, he ensures that it has both British and St. Kitts flags because he says it makes his dad happy.

When Palmer was a kid, he often visited the parks to see his dad play soccer in the Sunday League. Growing up, his dad frequently took him to nearby parks, where he practiced soccer.

Even during workweeks, his parents used to arrive home soon after their job was over to take him for training at the academy.

Fortunately, all their work paid off as the Manchester City club scouts immediately recognized their son’s ability and admitted him to their academy at eight.

Cole plays for the club’s senior team and has been a part of the squad that won the treble, winning three major trophies in European soccer league. 

Cole’s parents are proud of their son for whatever he has achieved so far, despite being so young, and are looking forward to seeing him make more progress in the future. However, their greatest dream is to watch him play in the World Cup for England.

More On His Sister Hallie

The Manchester City soccer star has a younger sister named Hallie Jennifer Palmer.

Born and raised in Wyshenthawe, like Palmer, Hallie studies fashion design at MCR Fashion Institute in Manchester.

Besides, Cole’s sister has been a Manchester City fan since childhood and is currently one of Cole’s greatest supporters.
