DJCT Names New Director of Goalkeeping
John Clee-Charlton has been named DJCT's new Director of Goalkeeping starting in May of 2015. John will be in charge all of goalkeeper training sessions at each location. John brings a wealth of experience to the club and will be a great addition to the coaching staff.
John grew up in a small town in Wales, UK and played goalkeeper from 9 years old for local and select development squads till the age of 21. John attended the University of Chichester, gained a BSC in Sports Science and played for the university team and the local semi-pro team, Chichester City FC, in the Sussex County League Division 1. John then came to the U.S. in 2000 with Challenger Sports as a camp coach.
"I am very happy to be working with Dynamo Juniors as Director of Goalkeeping. Being a keeper is a passion, not just a position in a soccer team. The players that choose to be goalkeepers are a special breed. They are the last line of defense and they carry a lot of weight on their shoulders. One mistake, and it can change the flow of a game, or one moment of brilliance and strength, can lift a team to a higher level. I can’t wait for the opportunity to pass on the knowledge and passion I have for being a keeper."
