Academy column: Talented stoppers, congratulations and unbeaten U18s

Academy Column

10th February 2017

In our latest Academy column, we speak to U18s goalkeeping coach Neil Edwards about the progress of young stoppers Kamil Grabara, Shamal George and Caoimhin Kelleher.

It is fair to say we have some very talented goalkeepers coming through the ranks and it is an absolute pleasure to help each and every one of them on their journey. I know Kamil and Caoimhin have caught the eye amongst many of our supporters with their excellent displays at Academy level so far, and it is the result of the sheer hard work and dedication the pair have put into their game. Our first-team goalkeeping coach John Achterberg, Mark Morris and myself had seen Kamil and Caoimhin in action before we signed them. They both stood out.

Kamil is a big, big lad, and he has come over from Poland, had to adapt to life in a new country and a different way of playing the game. The pace of the game is quicker in England, there are more challenges on goalkeepers and you don’t get time on the ball. That’s why it’s so important for a goalkeeper in modern football to be really good with the ball at his feet. Kamil has really good attributes. What he is very good at and what has impressed me, is his decision-making. He picks up the danger early and he makes the decision to either catch the ball or punch it clear with his strong hands away from the danger area. That is a good trademark to have.
