Since Stephen Cluxton arrived on the scene we all know that the position of goalkeeper has been changed utterly. Pulling on the keeper’s jersey nowadays is a vote of confidence from the manager. He’s looking for a player that can restart the game with pin point accuracy, go long or short as needed, stop shots and remain calm under pressure. Simple as that. Can you do it?
In Dublin BC – Before Cluxton - they had a history of superb keepers with the legend Paddy Culllen through to John O’Leary. Then Stephen Cluxton arrived and its all been changing utterly ever since. Since Cluxton became the latest recipient off the Dublin GAA Goalkeeper jersey, he has made it his own with his laser tracked kicking and brilliant distribution.
