Goalkeeper Coaching in Leeds
Initially a winger, who had trials with Leeds United and Ipswich Town, Jonny converted to goalkeeping at the age of 15 when he joined an open age men’s league in Leeds. After taking to the position like a duck to water, as they say, Jonny moved to study at the university in Sunderland in 2003 and joined the then successful university team.
After a couple of months playing for the university team, Jonny was spotted by a Sunderland FC scout, who invited him in for a trial. Choosing to quit university in favour of football, Jonny remained at Sunderland for a further six months, working hard towards a dream, working alongside several outstanding goalkeepers and coaches.
It was always going to be a tough dream, especially with the calibre of goalkeepers at the club at the time, many of whom went on to make many international caps for their respective countries.
After this followed a modest non-league career playing for local Unibond level teams, Jonny decided that coaching was a good idea and has never looked back since.
Having started late in the coaching game, Jonny has already gone on to great achievements and has worked his way up working for J4K Yorkshire to head coach and currently works across 5 venues and with the academy goalkeepers at Leeds United.
Jonny is FA Level 2 Qualified (Outfield and Goalkeeping) Coach, CRB checked and fully insured.
Outside of football, Jonny writes science fiction, plays German board games and is a massive ice hockey fan.
