2016 Goalkeeper Training at Mooredale

We are pleased to announce our Goalkeeper Training program that will be running starting in late January - March.

The Program will be run by our club goalkeeper head coach Liam Martin who has been with us for just over a year.  Liam is also part of our RDP coaching staff who are working to develop the best players possible.

Liam has played professionally in England as a goalkeeper, this experience along with his knowledge of the game makes him a great fit to run our goalkeeper training.
