I remember when I first signed as a professional goalkeeper. The feeling was a mixture of relief and pure joy and if someone was to offer me a million pounds right now, I could not duplicate that amazing feeling when all my hard work paid off and I achieved my dreams to become a professional goalkeeper.
I think what was so special about my journey, I never attended and professional clubs centre of excellence or academy, I just played for my local teams and focused on having fun, and I started off when I was just 12 years old on my mission to become a professional goalkeeper.
I then had 6 years of rejection after rejection, with so many people laughing at me stating I was crazy to think I would ever achieve my dreams, so can you image how great I felt when I become a professional goalkeeper aged 18, and then had a career that spanned a decade. In fact it was only a freak training ground injury that finished my career aged just 28.

I have been running Just4keepers now for over two decades and it is amazing to see students from Just4keepers go onto professional clubs, and when I see images of Manchester United goalkeeper Ondrej Mastny who came through the Just4keepers system, it makes me so proud what myself and fellow J4K coaches are doing to help the young keepers of today to achieve their dreams.
No other goalkeeper schools in history even comes close to the success that J4K has for our proven record in helping our students to either become professional, semi professional and or even gain a college USA scholarship.
And when I see these Just4keepers students achieve their dreams, this gives me the exact same feeling of excitement, just like when I signed professional all those years back.
