The Worcester Goalkeeper Academy goes from strength to strength. 

What a great night last Friday…

Since we achieved our accreditation with the FA, we have gone from strength to strength, not only attracting more keepers every week, but also more coaches too.

We had our awards after the final session of the season, with 21 of the keepers on our books now. They all received a medal for their efforts, with congratulations and applause for all from coaches, parents and the other keepers. 

Not forgetting those that were unable to attend, congratulations to those keepers too!

We had 4 additional awards, 2 each in the older and younger category. Congratulations to:

  • Jodie Whiteman – Star Keeper
  • William Hemming – Star Keeper
  • Callum Weaver – Most Improved
  • Olivia Rooke – Most Improved


    So that brings the Academy to a close this season, however we will reopen again on the 2nd September 2016!

    Although if you can’t wait that long…

    If you want some more goalkeeper training over the Summer, the Worcester Goalkeeper Academy coaches will be putting on Goalkeeper specific sessions that your keepers can attend at the WCT Raiders Football Academy on the 3G at the KGV (King George V Community Centre), Ash Avenue, Worcester WR4 9TL. The dates for these sessions will be:

    • 21st May 2016
    • 18th June 2016
    • 23rd July 2016
    • 20th August 2016

    The Football Academy there is on from 10:30 am to 11:30 am and they charge £2 for the hour. The keepers are welcome on other Saturdays if they want to come and get involved in the outfield training sessions too, it may help on other skills, as footwork and understanding the outfield play are also useful to a goalkeeper.

    So may be see you Saturday’s… Otherwise see you in September 😉
