Former Premier League goalkeepers Richard Lee and David Button to provide free coaching in Watford

This Is Local London: Watford's Jonathan Bond, Brentford's Richard Lee and Cardiff City goalkeeper Simon Moore at GK Icon' Watford's last open session last year Watford's Jonathan Bond, Brentford's Richard Lee and Cardiff City goalkeeper Simon Moore at GK Icon' Watford's last open session last year

Former Hornets goalkeeper Richard Lee and his Brentford team-mate David Button will be providing free coaching to youngsters in the Watford area next week.

Lee and Button, who is an ex-Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper, will be meeting young players, parents and managers on Friday, February 7 as part of Gk Icon Watford’s open session at Evergreen FC, in Southway, Abbots Langley.

GK Icon, which was set up by former Watford shot-stopper Lee, provides goalkeeper coaching and has centres across the UK and other countries, including the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Jade Brooks, who helps run several GK Icon centres and is organising the open session, said: “It will be a great opportunity for players, managers and parents to get an insight into the fantastic training that GK Icon offers.

“Those players attending this free taster session will be able to speak to professional keepers in Brentford FC's David Button and Richard Lee. They will be there for the evening to answer any questions and give some hints and tips to potential keepers.”

There will be three hour-long sessions between 6pm and 9pm on the night depending on the age groups of interested keepers.

I'm not any sort of expert on goalkeeping but I would of thought that the basics are all important, for example getting your body behind the ball so if it slips through your fingers you'll still stop it. I remember that Scott Loach got into the England squad then seemed to lose the basic skills. What do Loach and Bond have in common from their time at Watford?
