About DW Goalkeeping Academy

The DW Goalkeeping Academy was established in 2016 by Dan Worthington, to offer specialised Goalkeeping coaching for local Goalkeepers and grassroots clubs.

Professional, modern and innovative training sessions designed to develop Goalkeepers who are just starting out to Goalkeepers that are playing Academy football at professional clubs.

Based in Essex, weekly training sessions are on artificial grass pitches across multiple venues. Monday nights at Shenfield High School, Wednesday nights at the Robert Clack School Leisure Centre in Dagenham and Saturday mornings at the Noak Hill Sports Complex (grass pitch) in Romford.

Head Coach Dan is a passionate, enthusiastic and qualified Goalkeeping coach with experience coaching at grassroots and within a professional environment. He has held positions at Dagenham & Redbridge as Assistant Academy Goalkeeping Coach and West Ham United as their Development Centre Goalkeeping Coach. He has experience coaching in the UK and the USA, having worked for West Ham United among other category 1 clubs in partnership with Global Image Sports on their national ID camps. Using his links from grassroots to professional clubs, Dan has overseen some of the DW Goalkeeping Academy keepers who have excelled go onto sign for professional clubs with others securing trials.
