About the Dinner

Whether you are a parent wanting to understand more about what your child experiences as a goalkeeper, a coach who supports continual personal development to take your coaching to the next level, or a player wanting to maximise your potential, this event will be for you. 

We have a top table of goalkeepers and goalkeeper coaches with over 1800 games at the highest level and 90 years of elite coaching between them.

- Learn about effective coaching and training methodology as well as insight into being a first team goalkeeper coach at Tottenham Hotspur and his time working for the FA with England, from one of the highest respected goalkeeper coaches in the UK - Tony Parks.

- Hear from former Watford first team keeper Alec Chamberlain, who made over 780 appearances in his illustrious goalkeeping career and then went on to be first team goalkeeping coach at Watford FC.

- Former Liverpool and England goalkeeper Chris Kirkland will speak about his time as a pro goalkeeper in the Premier League with Liverpool and Wigan, playing for England and his recently documented battles with mental health.
