Following another record level of growth seen this year at the club's Youth Goalkeeper Academy, Eastbourne Borough FC ...


... have announced plans to enhance their keeper coaching still further with effect from this season.

For the 2019/20 season, and started on the 2nd September, the highly popular Monday night sessions will continue with it's Junior section for U7 - U11's (5pm to 6.15pm) followed by the Senior section for U12 - U16's (6.15pm to 7.30pm.) However, Tim Brown, Head Coach at the club's Youth GK Academy explained that further expansion is likely. "As a team of GK coaches we are constantly looking at ways to improve our level of coaching support as we are now regularly working with over 30 young goalkeepers each week, with players travelling from right across Kent and Sussex as our reputation continues to grow. So we are delighted to secure the coaching services of former West Ham Utd and Watford GK Sam Howes who will be working with our Senior goalkeepers with the plan that we can then run a third Elite section for a pathway into our Academy."

To take it to the next level both Tim, Sam, Marc Austin and Dean Lightwood will make up a new and hugely experienced GK coaching team at Priory Lane. Last season Boro's Youth Goalkeeper Academy again saw several of their elite youngsters achieving trials at professional clubs, international call ups and this season exciting plans are already underway to run more GK Coaching Clinics supported by professional GK's, to increase the number of Half Term GK Camps, secure a GK Academy sponsor and further develop the 'Boro GK Pathway.'
