Tadgh Ryan and George Dorrington help train the youngsters

-    Sessions ran by Town coach for young goalkeepers
-    Anyone aged Under-7 to Under-20 can attend
-    Youngsters can progress into Town Academy

Huddersfield Town’s Lead Academy Goalkeeping Coach Paul Clements is running training sessions for young local goalkeepers who aren’t in professional Academies.

The sessions put on by Clements and his team aim to give young goalkeeper’s a chance to get Academy level coaching if they aren’t already in an Academy set-up.

Youngsters will be able to attend the weekly sessions to specifically target their goalkeeping ability to help them develop and progress.

This will aid the Club’s development centres and increased the amount of players that filter into the Huddersfield Town Academy and solely focuses on the improvement of the individuals and the youngsters.

Being part of the Huddersfield Town Academy set-up, Clements and his team will provide quality coaching and will also give the children a chance to make the transition into the Terriers’ Academy if they are good enough.

Under-21s goalkeepers from the Academy will also come to the sessions to help train the youngsters; Tadgh Ryan and George Dorrington have already been involved as well as part-time Goalkeeping Coach at the Academy Tom Weal.

The location of the sessions changes frequently and they are open for everyone between the ages of Under-7s and Under-20s to attend.

The sessions usually run for an hour and 15 minutes but there are also full day sessions during the school holidays.

Make sure you get in contact as the first session is free for everyone to attend!

If you are interested look out for details of the next training camp on Twitter @prem_coachingGK or on the website, please register you attendance before the session.

Lead Academy Goalkeeping Coach, Paul Clements commented:

“This is a great way to develop youngsters who don’t have Academy style coaching already. Usually in local football the goalkeepers just train with the other lads so we will offer them the specific coaching they need to develop.

“We have seen people really kick-on and improve after being in our training camps and if they are good enough we can get them involved in the Huddersfield Town Academy.

“The coaching is given at a professional standard. It benefits the ‘keepers and the junior club’s they are playing for as well as the Club’s current Academy goalkeepers who help us during these sessions.”
