Coaching You To Victory
Due to confidentiality agreements we are unable to share the name of this Premier League First team Goalkeeper coach, however it's safe to say when you meet him you won't be disappointed you will truly get a world class session from one of the highest rated Goalie coaches in the world!!!
Ted Collins: "I'm currently playing at Colchester United at the age of 20 and have been there for many years. 2 years ago I started coaching with CHGK to share my knowledge of the modern game with the younger Goalies. There is nothing I love more than watching my goalies make world-class saves."
Lloyd Wicks: "I have been at Sudbury now for just over 2 years. I’m 17 and very passionate about my football/ coaching career. I am incredibly motivated and just want to help as many Goalies as I can, I think it's really important that we back each other as Goalies and we can be lonely on a match day. I want to share all the information that I have learned so that you can learn from my mistakes and successes and go on to fulfill your true potential and reach the level you deserve to play at."
Alex Murphy: "I'm one of the longest-serving coaches of 3 years, and I know the ins and outs of CHGK. I've played at Witham Town but have recently put football aside to focus on coaching and work. I'm incredibly approachable and friendly and I have an excellent relationship with our Goalies. I'm a big believer in really high-intensity sessions and when my Goalies give their all to the session I promise them they will have an excellent session and make massive improvements. I massively enjoy coaching young goalies with very little experience and inspiring them to fall in love with Goalkeeping."
Pete Hammond: "As one of the newest members of our Coaching staff I bring bags of experience under my belt. I started my coaching career in 2001 and got my coaching badges and attended the London Football Association of Coaching. Throughout the years I have coached at the likes of Braintree Town, Witham Town, and plenty of others. As a coach, I'm very personable and an enjoyable coach to be around. I'm an incredibly passionate and determined coach and you are sure to learn a lot from me."
Zakk Palmer: "Having played at academy level from a young age at Southend and West Ham and going on to win many impressive achievements. I now play College football along side my education as well as coaching at CHGK. I’ve always been around football for as long as I can remember which also helps me perfect my eye for detail and helps relay my coaching points to my Goalies as I can explain how it works in a game. I love coaching and I am very passionate and focused to learn more about how I can my may sessions and give my Goalies the best chance of success."
Ciaran Stearn: "I started my goalkeeping career around the age of 7 playing for my local team after 6 years I was picked up by Ipswich Town Fc at the age of 13 and was there until the age of 16. I moved to Luton town after not getting another contract at Ipswich, I played for clubs such as Billericay Town, Potters bar town, east Thurrock United, and concord rangers. I’ve also had a spell out at a Division 2 team in Sweden. As a coach, I have a good eye for detail and I'm very motivational as I know how hard you need to work to improve. However, I know you need to enjoy it to learn"
Callum Taylor: "I played for Southend United for over 10 years, and made my first team debut at just 18 years old. I have also represented Northern Ireland at various levels. After deciding that Professional football life wasn't for me I decided to leave Southend and go to university. I love coming back from university and coaching, and I find joy in seeing younger goalkeepers improve week by week. My playing experience brings a wealth of knowledge and gives all of our goalkeepers someone to look up to. I am incredibly passionate about Goalkeeping and love passing on my Knowledge."
