I am delighted to be joining Evolution Goalkeeper Coaching in an ambassadorial role, for which I’m really looking forward to sharing information, techniques and practices, with Evolution budding goalkeepers. In addition, I am excited to be helping Evolution and their coaches produce the type of sessions that I would expect for the development of the young goalkeepers from a young age right through to 16-18 years of age.

I joined Evolution because I think they’re a great company who help goalkeepers of a wide age range, by looking at what each individual needs to improve and helping them improve each small change in technique rather than looking at each aspect of goalkeeping as a whole. When I first started attending the sessions with Lee Barrass, Evolution helped me greatly by developing a base for me as a goalkeeper in terms of set position, handling etc. which allowed me to kick on as a goalkeeper by then looking at the more technical side of the game such as shot stopping, passing and coming for crosses. As I still continue to develop myself as a goalkeeper, moving my way into the senior game, I really enjoy working with other goalkeepers to help them develop and improve and find the atmosphere at the sessions. They’re more like a group of friends rather than goalkeeper coaches and goalkeepers which makes it so easy to help others.
