Goalkeeper Training in Wigan

Chris Cheetham





Chris started playing football for a team called Robin Park FC aged 9, playing on a Sunday morning in the Wigan youth and district league when he was spotted by an Everton FC scout aged 11 and after a 6 week trial signed on. He spent four years at Everton FC before being released aged 15 and was then offered a 2 year YT contract at Bradford City. During his time at Bradford Chris was loaned out to Liverpool  FC academy to play in the under 17s AEGON Future cup, the teams in the tournament included Barcelona, Bayern Munich and AC Milan. After the tournament he returned to Bradford where they had an excellent FA Youth Cup run, beating a Southampton team that included Luke Shaw, Calum Chambers and James Ward-Prowse on penalties before being knocked out by Preston North End. Chris was released by Bradford in 2011 and spent the first part of the 2011/2012 season without a team before joining up with the Glenn Hoddle academy. After a week training and working with ex pro Dave Beasant at the academy he returned home and began the search for a new team, finally signing for Ashton United who play in the Evo-Stik Premier League. Chris now currently plays for Radcliffe Borough FC, winning the Young Player of the Year award for the 2013/2014 season and again for 2015/2016. He now wants to help the young goalkeepers of today through passing on his experience and knowledge for their benefit.
