We are very pleased to announce that Goalkeeper of the month is Velcro
Velcro trains with us at our Charlemont Centre on a Saturday morning and has been with us now for a number of years. When he started with us he was a quiet polite and quite a shy boy who was very keen to learn.
Velcro always hung onto every word that the Coaches told him and put coaching points into practice and over time he began to improve his technique, presence, shot-stopping and most of all his confidence, so much so one year GDS entered him in for some training with West Bromwich Albion Academy.
Over the last few weeks and months it has been noticed that Velcro has improved immensely with his Goalkeeping ability, technique and even more his confidence and not only that his outfield skills also. He has become a very accomplished young all round footballer and he is an absolute pleasure to coach. He is also extremely kind to other Keepers and is a perfect example of how we expect the GDS Keepers behave and act in the Academy.
Congratulations Velcro keep up the good work.
