Simon has been playing in goal since a very early age starting at youth level for a local team near his hometown. Being disillusioned with the lack of goalkeeping training in the area and for his club Simon changed to a right back position while still playing in goal when asked too.
A change of location for Simon at the age of 18 meant his love for goalkeeping came back and he joined a club local to Gatwick as a goalkeeper and after 4 games became first choice goalkeeper. After 1 season with the club a host of county level teams were asking Simon to join them and he joined cowfold fc however due to family commitments meaning he couldn’t invest the time he decided to change to coaching goalkeepers while playing in the west Sussex football league.
Simon started coaching goalkeepers in the horsham area for clubsyouth teams such as roffey Robbins, Crawley Panthers, chesworth rovers. He is dedicated to gaining more qualifications in coaching and feels he has already and can give more to the progression of young goalkeepers in his area. He wants to provide the quality and affordable goalkeeping coaching that was lacking when he was a young goalkeeper.
