The best goalkeepers do a lot more than just stop shots.
Great goalkeeping requires many specialist skills so it follows that goalkeeper training demands specialist coaching requirements.
Our Goalkeeper Academy is run by Coach Ben Field, our professional Goalkeeper Coach who was previously with the AFC Bournemouth Academy.
Coach Ben has worked alongside some of the top goalkeepers in the country and draws upon his vast experience in this specialist position.
