Position on corners for goalkeepers

Hi Guys

A lot of budding goalkeepers ask me, for corners do you put one player on front post, one player on back post or a player on each post?

The older you get and the better standard you play, normally the manager makes this decision for you and orr the team, however at a  young age what would I recommend?

Well, I would recommend you put a player on each post and you stand slightly off central, being more towards the back post.

Why the back post?

Basically because it’s easier to run forwards than it is backwards.


Also DO NOT stand on your line, always be half a yard of your line.
I hope this quick corner tip helps guys.
