Martin the ‘Magnificent’
Some people say Goalkeepers are ‘mad’ we say Goalkeepers are ‘dedicated’ and this is the case for Martin Kowalczyk. Martin this season played for no less than 7 teams. The Polish native who is known for his work rate at Just4Keepers Goalkeeper Academies in Dublin over the last two years, Martin also attended the J4K Advanced Camp in 2013 where he impressed all the Coaches with his attitude to training, work rate & quality that he was selected to represent J4K Ireland with an all expenses paid trip to the Just4Keepers Residential Camp in the UK
Martin sometimes played 5 games per week whilst NEVER missing a Goalkeeper Training Session OR a Goalkeeper Coaching Session in North Dublin, below is the list of teams he played with this season where he helped two of the teams to promotion:
Swords Celtic 17s, 18s, 19s, 3rd Team, 2nd team, 1st team whilst he also represented the NDSL Academy Youths under the guidance of the experienced John Morgan.
J4K coach Matt Gregg commented on Martin’s attributes ‘Martin is one of the hardest working goalkeepers we have in our Goalkeeper Coaching Schools in Dublin, and its no surprise to me that he has developed into one of the best Keepers of his age group in Dublin. It goes to show that if you work hard and commit to training you will progress, what Martin has done this season is an inspiration to all young Goalkeepers’
Martin attends numerous Goalkeeper Camps in Dublin and is always willing to train. Next season is looking bright for this young Keeper
