Just4keepers Founder Ray Newland with Joe hart

I have just found this photograph is in my draw… its a picture of a young England keeper Joe Hart (can you spot him)

I'm pictured far right failing trying to look casual in my hoody!

England Goalkeeper Joe hart

Also in this picture is other professional keepers, Nicky Weaver, Kasper Schmeichel (son of Man U goalkeeper Peter  Schmeichel) and the then Swedish International Andreas Isaksson.
The coach in the white t short was the then Manchester City goalkeeping coach and ex England International goalkeeper Tim Flowers.

This is a few years old now, and was when I was invited to watch the Manchester City goalkeepers train at their new training centre. You will also see in this pic Just4Keepers goalkeeping coaches Carlo and Ricardo Grecco who had flown in from Canada to see me to be trained up with their new J4K business. So it was a nice surprise for them both to also see how premiership keepers get trained.

They noted what they saw with the gk training session was a major difference between the goalkeeper training in North America, was the high intensity training, and also the attention to detail when it comes to developing a goalkeepers technique.
