After decades between the sticks, Nick Tudor is looking to pass on tips to the next generation of goalkeepers, and has set up the In Safe Hands coaching school.

Tudor said: “After playing in goal for 36 years and coaching for the last four with Burlington Jackdaws, I decided to get FA-qualified.

“I will cater for ages five to adult, with one-to-one and group sessions. Since I started the interest has been fantastic with lots of support from the local football scene.

“My passion is goalkeeping and always has been and I wanted to give something back. When I was a youngster I didn’t get any coaching and maybe just got a few shots at the end of a training session with my team, as did practically every young keeper going.

“Its a specialised position and keepers need looking after the same way an outfield player does.
