Michael’s Profile

Starting my goalkeeping journey at the age of 12, I quickly moved up the pyramid in to Development/Advanced centres and Academy training programs at Middlesbrough F.C and Newcastle United. I ended up starting my professional career at Berwick F.C.

After having my playing days cut short due to injuries, I moved into coaching in 2001 at the age of 18. My aim is to help goalkeepers fulfil their potential, giving them the opportunity to learn more about the art of Goalkeeping. My courses are designed for Students aged 7-17yrs with all keepers having one thing in common, the desire to learn more about their unique and specialist position.
