After a long and successful career as a professional goalkeeper and player/manager, since 2011, I have been coaching goalkeepers from as young as six up to adult in Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Surrey.
65 of my students have now gone on to both Football League and Premiership Clubs (including two at international level) a fact of which I am immensely proud.
I trained with many top keepers and keeper coaches in my career, these include England and Arsenal's David Seaman, Czech national goalkeeper Ludek Miklosko, Wimbledon FC and England stopper Dave Beasant to name but a few. I also had the pleasure of working with who I consider to be some of the best goalie coaches in the world of football on a daily basis over my 20-year career. Including Bob Wilson, Peter Bonetti, Mike Kelly, Jim Blyth and England first team coach Dave Watson.
I have now started my own goalkeeping academies in Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire Surrey and Bedfordshire so that I can pass on the knowledge I have gained from training with these great coaches and world class goalkeepers to you. In my sessions you will receive specialist goalkeeper coaching for all aspects of goalkeeping from the fundamentals, such as the correct hand shape, the correct ball handling methods, positioning in the goal relative to the ball position, different methods of distribution and making the correct match day decisions.
As your goalkeeper coach, I will always be available to you or your parents to talk about how you are progressing and things to work on in your own time.
I have many contacts in the world of football at pro clubs and all levels and I am regularly placing my young keepers into clubs that I feel will most benefit them while knowing that there is a chance of them being spotted by professional clubs.
So, if you want to progress on to playing at the highest level you can, come and join one of my Goalkeeping Academies.
