J4K Parent Testimony

Hi Ray,

 I wanted to get in touch to say a huge thank you for founding Just4Keepers. Both of my boys train with Phil and his team here in Plymouth each Friday and at the end of July would have been with J4K for a year. In that time they have gone from strength to strength as keepers developing in all areas whilst keeping the individual traits that went towards making their first season in the Devon Junior Minor League so successful. My youngest son Robert (age 9) actually ended the season top of the league with the best goal difference getting through to the finals and his older brother Thomas (age 11) went on to be scouted by what I am told is the biggest club in the South West. Both are becoming very well regarded locally and it’s been a big benefit to have them at J4K together as they go on to train and practise with each other throughout the week. It’s helped their confidence a huge amount and made an extraordinary impact on their lives.

I’m sure you get a lot of updates from keeper all around the country but I thought I’d take the opportunity at what will soon be an anniversary to let you know what an incredible job Phil and his coaches are doing here in Plymouth and that we are very thankful for J4K being available to us. Whilst no doubt Thomas & Robert are not the only goalkeeping brothers it’s something quite unique for us as not only are both doing exceptionally well and great advocates for the J4K system but both also want to go on to play professionally. They’ve recently been approached regarding academy training although I’ve also been advised that 14-16 might be a more appropriate age and that they’d be better off gaining match experience in their current teams and maintaining their training. Whatever happens I am certain goalkeeping will always be a part of their lives in the future.

Thanks again for everything you do and if I can ever be of any use to J4K through my own areas of expertise (website and graphic design, fine art and illustration) please do not hesitate to let me know. I’d be very pleased to help.

Thank you Simon
