Another three of my young 'keepers into pro clubs

Congratulations to Charlie & Fred Elkington who have signed for Northampton Town FC 

and also Alex Sodel who has been taken on by Peterborough United FC

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.
35 of my students have 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 throughout my career. These included ex England and Arsenal No1  David Seaman, ex Czech national team goalkeeper Ludek Miklosko, ex Wimbledon football club 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. These include Bob Wilson , Peter Bonetti, Mike Kelly,  Jim Blyth and England 1st team coach Dave Watson.

I have now started my own goalkeeping academies in NorthamptonshireBuckinghamshire, 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. 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 as you can see on my success stories tab.

So if you want to progress on to playing at the highest level you can, come and join one of my Goalkeeping Academies.

Another young 'keeper into a pro club

Max has been with me for 2 years at my venue in Surrey and has been signed by Tottenham Hotspur FC

Well done Max. All your hard work and attention has paid off.

Two more 'keepers in pro clubs.

Huxley Cherrington has only been with me for six months and has been snapped up by Chelsea FC.

George Bentley has been with me for two years and has been signed by my old club QPR.

A blast from the past. QPR vs Grimsby 11th March 2000  Penalty save (dodgey decision) and then accurate distribution that leads to a pen for us.
