"GOALKEEPER ACADEMY"

 

Coaches: Martyn Daughtery & Lee Summers

Training: Various Times throughout the season

Age Groups: U7s - U11s & U12s - U15s

 

This season, St Day AFC is offering something that is not offered by many grassroots clubs throughout the country. After putting in a lot of effort, time and money we are now able to offer all of our club goalkeepers the chance to be part of a goalkeeping Academy. This season Martyn Daughtery and Lee Summers are setting up a long term Goalkeeper development plan for all our youth goalkeepers at the club. They will run an academy-like syllabus similar to Liverpool FC & Plymouth Argyle FC. They’ve passed their goalkeeping qualifications as well as their coaching level 2 and youth module awards 1 & 2 and are therefore more than equipped to deliver goalkeepers for the future. They also more recently attend a national GK conference at St George’s Park, Wembley with access to professional coaches and goalkeepers for further advice.

Chairman, Mark Leah, has given them his full support and they hope to work closely with all youth team coaches/managers and our confident that everyone will benefit. As coaches, they are also keen to constantly improve our knowledge and skills and have been fortunate enough to be invited to the Liverpool Academy by Goalkeeper Coach Mark Morris. All club goalkeepers will be contacted and will receive the coaching if they chose.
