York 9 FC Goalkeeper, Matt Silva
NC State Director of Goalkeeping, Justin Bryant
In the very first episode of The Keeper Connection I had the opportunity to speak about goalkeeping with NC State Director of Goalkeeping Justin Bryant. We discuss his own amazing journey in football, greatest lessons learned through goalkeeping, changes in perspective on the position, how to deal with self doubt and anxiety, advice for young players, views on football governing bodies, why the US aren’t producing the same level of goalkeepers that they use to and much more. This was an amazing chat and I’m hoping to do more like it. Justin has also wrote a book about his time playing in England called: Small Time: A Life In The Football Wilderness.
