23 coaches from 15 European Nations linked online to be part of EHF Webinar 3 2014 last night.

Roger Newcombe – England U18 Manager and consultant GK coach led discussions concerning the skills needed by top goalies when defending short corners.

Roger stressed that the goalie should lead a team within a team (i.e. short corner defence group) and stressed the need for repetitive and progressive practise
