Goalkeeper Gloves In England

Over the past few years there has been many MANY goalkeeper glove companies come onto the market, so great some not so great. The reason why you have seen loads spring onto the market of late is because its so easy to find glove suppliers!

However there is good suppliers and some very bad glove suppliers. Most people pick bad and poor glove suppliers because they are cheap!

However one thing we pride ourselves at Just4keepers Gloves is that we use quality in our gloves and even though our suppliers are more expensive than other gloves suppliers (As we want quality for our customers) at J4K we DO NOT put high profits on our gloves, so our customers get high specification goalie gloves at rock bottom prices!

Only at Just4keepers do we provide notch keeper gloves at such low prices!

J4K - The goalkeepers choice!

Best of Goalkeeping

Getting into Academies

Most young goalkeepers dream of getting to a professional football or soccer club academy. Or should I say the parent, especially the dads want to get to academies!

Please do not think I am knocking this dream because as a youngster this is all I dreamed about EVERY single day!

Most keepers and parents think if they are not at an academy that they have no chance of becoming a professional goalkeeper, however the great news is this could not be further from the truth.

Being at an academy is no big deal and especially with goalkeepers, with all the specialised GK coaching schools around, a young keeper is probably better going to a independent goalkeeper school rather than their local professional soccer clubs academy


Basically because most independent goalkeeper coaching schools are run by ex professional goalkeepers and at most professional academies the goalkeeper coaches, might be qualified but in terms of having professional playing experience, they have nothing!

So you are best having your son/daughter training with ex professional keeper rather than an inexperienced keeper coach all be it he is a GK coach at a Pro club.

Also if your child get to a pro club, you better learn how to handle being a pro club so you can best help your child because if you do not know what to do, when to do it and also be strong with the coaches at this club, your child may get messed about.

However rather than blabber on about how you should conduct yourself at a professional football soccer club academy, you are best reading a great book called ‘How to become a professional goalkeeper’ as this teaches parents how to deal with professional clubs academies.
