Do you coach goalkeepers and want to help them realise their fullest potential? Are you a goalkeeper looking to reach the top of your game? Then search no further and dive into this dedicated goalkeeping resource.
Goalkeeping is a unique and often undervalued role within a football team. It can be a lonely position with exclusive physical, psychological and tactical demands placed upon the person donning the gloves. The man between the sticks must be able to perform a multitude of tasks to prevent goals going in, but also operate so the ‘last line of defence’ becomes the first line of attack.
Written by goalkeeping guru Andy Elleray this book offers a fresh and innovative approach to goalkeeping in football. With a particular emphasis on the development of young goalkeepers, it sheds light on training, player development, match performances, and player analysis. Utilising his own experiences Andy shows the reader various approaches, systems and exercises that will enable goalkeepers to train effectively and appropriately to bring out the very best in them. Practice and theory are merged together to create a highly practical book with its roots in the latest research and thinking.
