Johnson returns from Holland 03/12/04
Supersport united's goalkeeper coach Grant Johnson has returned from a two-week goalkeeping workshop in Holland.

The workshop was organised by United's Director of Football Stan Matthews and Technical Director at Feyenoord Mark Wouter, as well as Feyenoord's Academy manager Mark Verstee.

"I benefited a lot in terms of exercises, planning, organisation and generally on how the club operates. I learnt how to train different age groups, because one cannot train a six year old the same way you would do to the first team goalkeeper," Johnson told the club's official website.

"The workshop also helped me to familiarise with the basic points of goalkeeping because in most cases one gets exposed to a situation where you can't apply them properly."

He revealed spent time with the junior and senior teams of Feyenoord and Excelsior.

"The areas we touched base on, specifically involved goalkeeping. Other coaches who are based in Holland joined me, they were so accommodating, acceptable and well organized. It was actually a fantastic experience," he said.

"Since I've retired, I'm now actively involved with the Academy and the first team (Supersport United). Goalkeeping is the area that has long been neglected, there is quite a vast difference between what is done in Europe and South Africa respectively."
