Coerver® Scotland Technical Director Joe Jones was pleased to see the announcement of the programme, he said ‘It is essential that we develop a certain type of goalkeeper, to be able to play as part of a Coerver® Team. Our Coerver® Box Trap team style relies very much on an attacking, positive, proactive, modern goalkeeper, who is comfortable in possession of the ball but also has the traditional qualities of top keepers’
‘Scotland has a great tradition of developing outstanding goalkeepers over many years, we look forward to contributing to developing Goalkeepers across the country’
