A Modern Approach to Goalkeeping ... with Tony Elliott.
United’s Academy keeper coach Tony Elliott will be at Waterstones in Carlisle from 10.30am next Saturday [23 December] to sign copies of his new book – A Modern Approach To Goalkeeping.
Speaking about the book this week, he said: “The title probably suggests that the content is just about the role of the modern goalkeeper, but that definitely isn’t the case.
“It’s been a pleasure to put it together and I think the content will be of interest not only to those who specialise in the Number 1 role, but also to those who have a wider interest in football, whether they are involved in the sport or not.
“Over the years I have had the honour of working across six different formats of the game, so I felt it was important for me to put those thoughts, findings and observations in writing so that others can tap into and learn from the experiences I’ve had.
“I think people will find it to be interesting and informative and I’m looking forward to meeting everyone to talk about it in Waterstones next Saturday.”
Included in the book are sections on the following subjects:
+ Tony Elliott’s journey into football and coaching.
+ Developing others, including - Respect, Ownership, Connection, Confidence and Commitment.
+ Building relationships in a work environment.
+ The building of a coaching syllabus.
+ Numerous case studies across many formats of the game.
+ Elliott’s experiences with the GB Paralympic Football team, in particular the trip to the Rio Paralympics in 2016.
+ And much, much more!
The book signing takes place at the Waterstones Carlisle store on Saturday 23 December, between 10.30am and 4pm.
