How long have you been coming to GDS?

What do you like best about GDS?
Apart from the banter, I like the fact we have lots of coaches who are there to help you with your game. I like the fact I get to work with other keepers as I don’t get this with my team.
How has GDS helped you?
GDS has helped me with the basics of goalkeeping such as how to catch the ball properly and how to dive. I have also learnt how to keep myself safe when doing one on ones.
What is your favourite coaching drill?
I enjoy doing ‘hexagon’ it’s a drill that helps with your shot stopping and reflexes – it’s great fun
