"Great-Save is a goalkeeping coaching company delivering position specific training to goalkeepers, established with the aim of satisfying the needs of both parents & players, and offering them the equal training opportunities as outfielders.

Delivering a unique product through a personal approach to developing players to the very best standard, in order to reach their maximum potential and ultimately obtain excellence".


Great-Save Goalkeeping Coaching Limited was founded in September 2015 (reformed in 2017) by Director Dan Martin with three key aims:

● To give goalkeepers the same equal opportunity to coaching and training as outfield players.
● Improve the standard of goalkeepers at grassroots and offer the chance to obtain excellence.
● Increase the number of goalkeeping companies, sessions, coaches and players applying the art of goalkeeping.

These are the key factors which form our motivation for developing the company. Our key factors are formed because society's perception has often previously lacked awareness and access to goalkeeping coaching which has led to them being forgotten about. Clubs often either undervalue coaching for goalkeepers or coaches do not understand the roles and responsibility of the specialty coaching that the position requires. This has led to the lack of individual development of goalkeepers.

Young goalkeepers, parents and professional football academies quite often face the same old issues, "they're too small/short, not athletic enough or too mentally fragile". Other key problem areas include limited reviews/reports on young goalkeepers and not enough players in the position of goalkeeper. Therefore, our programmes aim to hit four out of those five issues to develop the next generation.

Value Proposition

● Health and injury care
●  Fitness and healthy living
●  Personalised technical development
●  Physical, psychological and social skills Development
●  Personal/team skills development
●  Access to professional pathway


Our expectations for all of our goalkeepers filters into 6 factors:

- Commitment
- Professionalism
- Attitude
- Work-rate
- Team Work
- 100% Effort

What's Unique about us?

We pride ourselves on our personal approach; to making the little things big and taking the time to get to know our goalkeepers. We like to get to know each individual; who they are, what they want, how they learn and how to get the best from that individual. Our purpose is to develop individual's goalkeeping skills, but we know the key to improving their football skills isn't just about improving their football, but also encouraging and improving them as people. Our approach boosts their confidence, develops their team work skills, opening up their communication and supporting them in their quest to become the best possible individual.

We offer numerous coaching opportunities which cater for all player's needs, whether goalkeepers are looking to be the next Jordan Pickford or just get their kit dirty. We also attempt to ensure opportunities are available for all budgets with various programmes to meet the needs to further their education and development.
