To improve Rovers' relations with junior and non-league teams in the north-west, Rovers Goalkeeping Coach Ben Benson is inviting local goalkeeping coaches and team coaches into the academy for a unique look at how the club operate the Academy goalkeeping programme.
This evening is designed to give local Goalkeeping Coaches and Team Coaches the opportunity to gain an insight into the academy Goalkeeping program here at rovers through both theoretical and practical demonstrations.
The evening will consist of a theory element on the Goalkeeping Philosophy followed by the opportunity to watch an academy Goalkeeping session. This will be followed by a question and answer session with Ben, Head of Club Talent ID Stuart Harvey plus other Academy Goalkeeping staff.
There are limited places available for this event and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Following the success of Benson's recent Goalkeeping Camp, Ben is thrilled to bring the local goalkeeping community together by running this event.
"Having now run the goalkeeping open evenings for players we felt one of the next things we wanted to do was a similar evening for coaches," he said.
"This evening has been in the planning for a while now and we are delighted to be able to announce it.
"Myself and Stuart Harvey are passionate about developing and sustaining these local links with clubs which we see as vital to the academy Goalkeeping program."
"There is excellent work done in local grassroots and non-league football, and hopefully this evening allows us to give a little something back to the coaches whether that be through seeing something practically or taking something away theoretically.
"As highlighted, this evening also allows us to formalise some of the links we have or would like to have moving forwards with our local teams."
