Alot of people would love to become a professional goalkeeper and sadly do not achieve their goalkeeping dreams. Even for the goalkeepers that do get to the fantastic level of playing professional in goal they might play a couple hundred professional games if there very lucky.

So how amazing is it that J4K Goalkeeper Coach Paul Bastock has managed to play OVER 1000 competitive professional and semi professional football games.

Paul made this astonishing landmark this year and to date only a handful of other professional football players have achieved this mind boggling amount of games.  So Paul is now in the same fame as England goalkeeping legend Peter Shilton who also went over the 1000 games mark.

Also, what is even more amazing.. Paul is STILL Playing at a semi professional level.

See below just some of the football clubs Paul played for.

Coventry City youth & reserve  , Cambridge united, Kettering Town,  , Boston  united Fisher Athletic, Dagenham and Redbridge, St Albans City, Rushden and Diamonds, Worksop Town and Royston Town, St Neots fc as well as a spell in Malaysia with Sabah.

Everyone at J4K wants to congratulate Paul on this amazing achievement!

we are also positive that his J4K student will draw inspiration from a man that has achieved only what 0.1% of the goalkeeping world has achieved!

Well done paul!!!!
