Are you a budding Petr Cech or David Ospina? Do you want to follow in Matt Macey’s shoes or are you a promising Hugo Keto or Joao Virginia?

If so then North London will be among the places set to host a goalkeeper’s camp for passionate young netminders.

The programme, spearheaded by former Watford and Brentford goalkeeper Richard Lee will offer youngsters the change to learn from several current and former professional goalkeepers as part of GK Icon.

Richard was capped by England at U18 and U20 level making two substitute appearances for the latter. He was called up into the U21 squad, but did not make an appearance.

Richard said: “The UK has always had a pedigree for producing top class goalkeepers. It’s important we continue our rich tradition and reach out to the community to provide the tools and education to help players take their game to the next level.”
