Andrew Goldman - 'Goldie'
Andrew Goldman was one of the longest playing goalkeepers in the Northern NSW Football competitions, playing for some of the top clubs in the region. He has played with clubs and contributed to winning minor and major premierships in both Northern NSW Premier League and 1st Division.
Goldie has played with teams in the UK, the FA Cup and represented Great Britain at two international competitions (2005 & 2009), being awarded Goalkeeper of the Tournament in 2005 and winning a silver medal in 2009.
Andrew's passion stems from being able to provide quality, accessible coaching to players in the local area that wasn't available to him growing up.
He is committed to ensuring players are well prepared in accordance with the Football Australia curriculum, so when players have their chance to shine, they are ready.
Players who have trained with Andrew have been able to represent their area, state and country as goalkeepers in both football and futsal.
