Andy has been running Just4Keepers for 9 years and has helped over 20 Keepers play at Pro Clubs
Having begun managing youth teams at Kent League level aged just 19 years old, Andy then continued his coaching while travelling Australia. After returning to the UK Andy was given an opportunity to coach for the then Championship side, Gillingham FC. Here he managed the U16 Academy side and was the Centre of Excellence goalkeeper coach. During 2006 Andy also joined J4K. He has now established over 14 different venues and is responsible for the development of an average of 300 students per week and has helped dozens of his students play at professional clubs! Andy left Gillingham in 2010 to take up a new role as goalkeeper coach for the U18 Academy at Chelsea F.C. while continuing to grow and improve the availability of J4K throughout the South East. Andy currently holds his FA Level II Outfield and FA Level II Goalkeeper Badges, as well as the UEFA B Licences, and last season took his UEFA A Licence while working as the manager of Margate F.C Under 21 side. He not only prides himself on the level of coaching he provides but also the facilities that he uses. All venues are on floodlit grass or 3G pitches, providing your child with the best conditions in which to improve. Andy’s reputation locally as one of the top young coaches in his area and the opportunity’s that J4K provide for keepers has meant that the overall standard of goalkeeping in the South East has greatly improved over recent years. The goalkeepers of Sussex are in safe hands!
