Omonia Youth FC goalkeepers have goalkeeping session with England’s Joe Hart

February 21, 2018

Three goalkeepers from community football club Omonia Youth FC, sponsored by P&M Construction UK Ltd, spent a day during half term having a training session with West Ham and England international Joe Hart.

The day was organised by Nike as Omonia Youth FC are a Nike Partner Club. All three goalkeepers were put through their paces and the day afforded the three goalkeepers a fantastic insight into what it takes to make a top class goalkeeper. The young goalkeepers also got to test new football boots yet to be released and got had the opportunity to ask Joe Hart questions. The England international was generous with his time, talking to the players, signing autographs and posing for photos.

Joining them on the day was the club’s own goalkeeping coach, Deger Zekai. The three goalkeepers involved were Alexandros Pieri from the Under 16 Green, Zachary Wheeler from the Under 15 Green and Alexander Paphitis from the Under 15 White.
