Testimonials about Reactions Goalkeeper Coaching
'The kids older and younger and Chloe all had a great evening. I was impressed with your patience!'
'My son trains with Eddie and the other lads on Tuesday at the RSA Academy school in Tipton, since Vish (my son) has started he has had motivation from everyone there which has built his confidence. I would recommend Eddie because he has always taught the kids what they need to learn in a fun way, my son has always had a smile on his face after his session and is always excited for the next session. Thanks for everything Eddie.'

'I just wanted to say thank you for all the work you are doing with Barnes, he loves coming to your sessions and it's been wonderful watching him learn, and grow at the hands of yourself and your fantastic coaching team. Over the summer Barnes was lucky to be able to participate in the Goal Keeper holiday club (booked to keep him out of trouble) at Stoke. On the last Friday of his course he achieved Junior Keeper of the camp which was lovely for him because he'd worked so hard, putting in 110% effort, and successfully managing his distractions to come out on top and win a little prize, (which he is chuffed to bits with). We didn't realise that your coaches were associated with Stoke City FC until our arrival at the Academy Dome but I can honestly say it was such a blessing to have the right people expand Barnes skills through fun and games during his school holiday, (really it's been a great stroke of luck because we were simply hoping he'd be able to get some extra hours on the ball whilst his own football club were taking a summer break but to find out that Barnes would be learning each day with your team of coaches was just a real blessing).
As you know on Monday your coach Joe kindly asked if we were agreeable to a trial being arranged for Barnes at Stoke... of course we said yes but to be honest with you we are not exactly sure what will happen from now as this is all very new to us. We are very proud of Barnes for working so hard at his goal keeping and regardless of the outcome of his trial we carry the firm belief that he's only reached this point because of your incredible training. To tell you the truth this news has come as a lovely surprise for us, we know how much Barnes enjoys his football but to be offered such an opportunity at only 7 'wow what an honour'. As this is all new to us we haven't really said anything to Barnes or anybody else yet. It is such exciting news and we are super proud of Barnes for receiving such a great footballing opportunity but we don't want to alter his perspective on things so we have kept things as normal as ever until we see how he gets on but looking at things if Barnes were to be successful then I think we would have to shout it from the rooftops. But for now we are just pleased he is loving life improving his skills and is looking forward to playing some football in the new season. We want Barnes to continue to work hard, he just loves coming to Reactions 'it's his favourite time of the day'.
All we can say at this stage Eddie is thank you, we are so pleased you handed us your card at the Hawkins tournament you have given our child something to strive for, along with encouragement and praise in equal measure at every session coming to learn at your coaching school was the best thing that could have happened to our child. We are excited to see what future will hold for Barnes but one thing we can be sure about he loves being a Goal Keeper and we wouldn't change bringing him to you for anything. Thank you for everything.'

'My son Jack plays for Netherton Colts West U15 (sundays, he is 15 and 2months old) and comes from Dudley, he attends Tipton reactions sessions on Tuesday evenings, he is doing that well, he has also started going to Eddie's friday evening sessions in Stoke, a round trip of 90 miles, (dedication or what). with Eddie's expert coaching the improvement in him is very noticable, in such a short time he has become a confident and competant goalkeeper and would be an asset to any teams who require a dedicated and likeable goalkeeper.
I would personally like to thank Eddie for what he has done so far and for the future coaching he will be giving Jack. Anyone interested and are looking for a goalkeeper, please don't hesitate to get in touch with myself or Eddie. Thank you.'
'Eddie, I would just like to thank you so much for the great goalkeeping session that you gave my son Harry last week. I was more than a little impressed with the whole event. Your complete balance of training, education and skills was absolutely brilliant and it was clearly evident that the whole group were having such fun. I never knew there was so much to being a goalie and I played league football for 20 years.
As we provide kids parties every weekend I know what it means to not only the kids but the parents too, to find such an exciting activity.
Once again a big thank you from me and Harry, we will have no hesitation in recommending you in the future.'
'My son turns up every friday evening to train with Eddie, rain or shine hes there and he loves it. Top professional training with alot of fun too. Keep up the good work Eddie!'

'I just thought I’d drop this note to say that Joe’s team – ‘Penkridge Junior Eagles’ won the Mid Staffs Premier League this weekend and came runners up in the cup the week before. A fantastic effort considering they only got promoted last season. Joe played fantastically well in both matches only conceding 1 goal and pulling off some great saves. The keeper training from Reactions has undoubtedly helped him considerably this year and I thank you for your time and effort. Well done you and well done Joe!'
'Great coaching style with great results and all the guys love it they train with a smile on there faces.'
'Nice touch of Eddie's to pass on some tips of his to the two young goalies that were training with their team on the pitch before Reactions training began.'
'The difference you made to Tom is huge. I hope your Cannock training goes ahead so he can rejoin.'
'The technique [my son] is developing with you is outstanding.'
