Joe Kirkham

You as a player: I play in goal, i play more as a sweeper keeper as i am confident to play out from the back. when I do rush off me line to sweep up any danger I keep calm and try to pick a simple pass so my team can keep hold of the ball. i like to play out from the back with sort passes to my defenders offering a return pass if we get pressed high up the pitch. I command my penalty area well by coming and claiming crosses, I make my mind up early to come and claim the cross or to get set for the shot to make the save. when I am making a save I always try to keep hold of the shot, as i try to make everything look nice and easy. But if I can not keep hold of the shot then i parry the ball in a good area away from the opposition strikers. if i fail to do this then i am up quickly to get the rebound. i am a leader on the pitch as I constantly give my defenders instructions so that the strikers get an easy shot at goal as i get my defenders high up the pitch so that my team can play in the oppositions half.
