Since moving to Brisbane I have been playing social football and represented Queensland in the over 35's FAO Futsal Nationals. I recently hung up my gloves at age 54.

Once a goalkeeper always a goalkeeper. It is hard to give the game away, this is now what I do to get my football fix. I hope that I am passing on some of my knowledge and experience to the next generation because as I am sure you know, goalkeepers are usually the forgotten player in the team and hardly ever coached in the correct techniques to SAFELY protect their goals.
