Have you ever wanted to take up goalkeeping? Would you like to understand the position better? Do you want to support a goalkeeper on their football journey? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then this fantastic new publication from goalkeeping specialist Andy Elleray is for you.

Like any sport, the basic foundations of any physical or technical action in goalkeeping are fundamental to performance. Without the basics, it’s impossible to expand a player’s game in terms of more advanced techniques. This book investigates the common types of saves, movements, and actions that the goalkeeper can – and is expected – to perform.

Goalkeeping in football is made up of many techniques, both with and without the ball. In “Goalkeeping Basics”, author Andy Elleray goes through a wide selection of common techniques and strips them right back to their fundamentals, what they look like, and how they can be properly learned and enhanced.

Accompanied by photo examples, plus a series of practices designed to work specifically on certain saves and situations, this colour book will illustrate and consolidate the key aspects behind goalkeeping in football.
