Essential New Goalkeeping Book Published: Scientific Approaches to Goalkeeping in Football

Book publisher Bennion Kearny is delighted to announce the publication of its new soccer title: Scientific Approaches to Goalkeeping in Football: A practical perspective on the most unique position in sport.


Goalkeeping is a unique and often undervalued role within a football team. It can be a lonely position with exclusive physical, psychological and tactical demands placed upon the person donning the gloves. The man between the sticks must be able to perform a multitude of tasks to prevent goals going in, but also operate so the ’last line of defence’ becomes the first line of attack.

Written by goalkeeping guru Andy Elleray “Scientific Approaches to Goalkeeping in Football: A practical perspective on the most unique position in sport” offers a fresh and innovative approach to goalkeeping in football. With a particular emphasis on the development of young goalkeepers, it sheds light on training, player development, match performances, and player analysis.

Utilising his own experiences Andy shows the reader various approaches, systems and exercises that will enable goalkeepers to train effectively and appropriately to bring out the very best in them. Practice and theory are merged together to create a highly practical book with its roots in the latest research and thinking.

Specific content includes:

  • Combat issues such as anxiety and nerves by boosting confidence and concentration
  • Delve into cutting edge video and performance analysis systems and implementations
  • Utilise alternative games-based training methods to bring out the best in goalkeepers
  • Develop the physical attributes needed to be a top goalkeeper
  • Learn about specific goalkeeping research, including physiology and biomechanics
  • Explore training methodologies from around the world

The book is aimed primarily at coaches and performance analysts who train young goalkeepers between the ages of 9 and 18. However, players of all ages will benefit from the information and advice contained within, and anyone with an interest in goalkeeping, the science behind player development, and innovative coaching will find valuable knowledge and direction in the book.
