Kettering Town are giving local goalkeepers the opportunity to train with their first-team.

Poppies assistant-manager Dean Greygoose, who was a professional goalkeeper for a number of years, wants to give local Sunday or Saturday league stoppers a taste of full-time training.

He said: “What we want to do is give local lads an insight into what it is like to be training full-time.

“Obviously we understand that they have to work but we are offering guys the chance to either come in for a day or for a week.

“If they come in for the week it will mean they work with our goalkeepers for that time and also be part of the matchday team so they can help with warm-ups and things like that.

“We have already had one local keeper taking up the option and he is coming in with us next week.”

The cost for any goalkeeper wanting to spend a week training with the Poppies is £60 while it will be £15 for a day.

Greygoose is also putting on goalkeeper courses for children aged between 9 and 16 years old at Nene Park during the summer holidays.

The four-week course starts on Monday, July 30 and will continue for the next three Monday evenings between 6pm and 7.30pm.

The sessions will take place on the training pitch at Nene Park at a cost of £20 for the four weeks.

First-team goalkeeper Laurie Walker will also be on hand to coach the youngsters and give out advice.

Anyone who would like to book up for either initiative should call the club on 01933 652000 or email info@ketteringtownfc.co.uk
