Goalkeeper Training in North Devon
This will be my Twelfth year with Just 4 Keepers as former head coach and now director of goalkeeping North West London. Its been a great journey and Im really excited to bring all that experience home to where it all started for me as a young footballer.
Its a privalige to become head coach in North Devon and im really looking forward to working with the goalkeepers in the area.
The development and friendship with local keepers, parents, grassroots and professional clubs has been fantastic in London and Im looking forward to recreating this in North Devon.
‘Mentoring aspiring young footballers is such a privilege’.
Jason was a late comer to goalkeeping, starting in goal when he was fifteen years old when his team goalkeeper at the time got injured. Jason went in goal originally just for cover, but played that well he has stayed in goal ever since!
Jason was such a natural in goal that he signed for semi professional team Torrington FC, playing in their first team at just sixteen! He then moved to neighbouring clubs Barnstaple and Bideford Town earning plaudits and impressing Reading FC where he played for a few months before moving onto Birmingham city who took him as first team cover against Wolves in the FA cup.
Eventually Jason came back taking his experiences to sign for Tiverton Town, before moving back to his home town Bideford.
Over his years as a semi professional goalkeeper, Jason played more than 250 first team games.
Jason was then invited to move to the USA to focus his efforts on becoming a goalkeeping coach. Being based in the North West Jason coached at club, camp and college level throughout Seattle, Tacoma and Portland advising coaches and mentoring aspiring young goalkeepers to reach their full potential.
On returning to the UK Jason’s passion for goalkeeping and inspiring young goalkeepers guided him to cross paths with Just 4 Keepers joining in 2008 where his efforts are second to none.
Jason has trained with Shaka Hislop and has been coached by the England legend Peter Bonnetti so he has A LOT of experience to draw from to help his goalkeeping students.
