"During my 4 years of training with John at the Goalkeeping Australa Academy he improved every aspect of my game. John gave up his time to train me throughout the off season and his coaching and guidance has made me the player I am today. Without his commitment and continued support I would not have had the confidence to progress to a higher level. I definitely owe John a lot and am very grateful for the opportunities his Academy has given me"
