David Rimmer is an ex Aston Villa keeper

David started playing in goal for the age of six and straight away was recognised for his goalkeeping abilities.

At age just nine, David had most of top professional clubs in his region after his signature. After much soul searching Dave signed for premiership club Aston Villa.

David spent 7 seasons at Aston Villa until he was asked to go on loan to neighbouring and fellow premiership club, Birmingham City. He went on a tournament with them to Italy and played that well that Birmingham City offered him a full time contract, which David accepted.

Sadly after a short spell at Birmingham City he received a nasty knee injury which sidelined him for over a season. On his return to football David signed for Tamworth were he tried to get back to full fitness.

David’s knee never recovered to its full flexibly, so he decided to drop down a league and play for semi professional team Alverchurch FC and start focusing on his goalkeeper coaching.

“One thing that helps me as a goalkeeper coach” states David, “Is that I have worked with some of the best goalkeeper and goalkeeper coaches in the game, which include, Mark Bosnich, David James, Ben Foster, Nigel Spink and Paul Barron.”

The experience I have gained working with the above has gave me an extra edge with my goalkeeper coaching, and moving my students forward.

David is FA qualified and having tasted professional success himself, he states he will go to any length to help any of his students make the professional grade.
