I have just found this is in my top draw… which is a picture of a very young England goalkeeper Joe Hart (can you see him?)

I am pictured far right in my hoody failing trying to look casual!

England Goalkeeper Joe hart

Also in the picture is fellow professional keepers, Nicky Weaver, Kasper Schmeichel (son of Manchester United and ‘Legend’ goalkeeper Peter  Schmeichel) and the then Swedish International Andreas Isaksson.

The keeper in the white t short was the then Manchester City goalkeeping coach and ex England International and Blackburn Rover goalkeeper Tim Flowers.

This picture was taken a few years back now when I was invited to watch the Manchester City goalies train at their new football training centre. You will also see in this picture Just4keepers goalkeeper coaches and brothers Carlo and Ricardo Grecco who had flown in from Canada to see m,e to be trained up by  me re their new J4K career. So it was a very nice surprise for them to also see how premiership goalkeepers got trained.

They stated the major difference between the goalkeeping training in North America,  to what they seen that day in Manchester was the high intensity training, and also the attention to detail when it comes to developing a goalkeepers technique.
