I’ve worked in professional football as a Goalkeeping coach for 20 years now, Dan and I worked together for a season at Dagenham & Redbridge. I have to say, he’s one of the best development coaches I’ve worked with. He’s a student of the game himself and will always develop his Goalkeepers, having recently provided us with a Goalkeeper who we’ve signed as an U14 within the Colchester United Academy. He really does help them become the best they can be.

I have worked closely with Dan for a few years now and I believe he is a very knowledgeable Goalkeeping coach. Dan’s enthusiasm is clear to see and he has a very good teaching style and excellent attention to detail with his coaching methods. He understands the recruitment standards when bringing in and developing Goalkeepers into the West Ham United Academy. Just as he does at West Ham on a weekly basis, I firmly believe he has the same professional standards at his own Academy.

I first met Dan on a Goalkeeping course back in June 2014; his knowledge, experience and professionalism for Goalkeeping stood out straight away! His delivery and communication with the Goalkeepers along with his quality coaching sessions on the course was clear to see. The improvement of the Goalkeepers taking part in his sessions was evident throughout the course. Dan is very good at what he does, with experience, qualifications and his contacts in football I have no doubt the Goalkeepers that go to his Academy will benefit massively from this.
