Huge congratulations to J4K Student Louie Catherall.

Louie has just been offered a 2 year full scholarship at local League One side Gillingham F.C.

Louie has been attending our Just4keepers academy in Thanet for over 5 years and was only spotted by a scout last season while playing for Faversham Town U15’s in the Kent Youth League. After impressing on trial and playing for the remainder of last season, Louie has now been invited back for full time training until he is 18.

This again proves that you don’t need to be in a professional club at the age of 10 or 12, and that continued weekly coaching and a good attitude to training can pay off.

Louie will be training alongside second year Scholar Will Sykes who also attended Just4keepers for many years. With the level of coaching we provide and the links into professional clubs that J4K offer, there really is no other place to get your goalkeeper coaching!

Here is Louie in his new kit at the Priestfield Stadium.
