A PROFESSIONAL goalkeeper helped to pass on his knowledge at a special goalkeeping 'master class' event held at Westfields on Monday evening.

Wolverhampton Wanderers shot stopper Harry Burgoyne attended the session to give guidance to the budding goalkeepers and presented a signed shirt to club chief executive Andy Morris.

Burgoyne joined Wolves at the age of 12, having been spotted filling in as a goalkeeper for Ludlow Town.

The event was organised by Allan Hawkins, who has been coaching goalkeepers in Herefordshire for the last 12 years.

Hawkins coaches goalkeepers independently along with coaching and scouting for West Bromwich Albion.

They were also joined by Ronnie Hollingshead, another Hereford born goalkeeper who plays for West Brom and has recently won his first Wales international cap.

Luca Smith also attended the Hereford sessions, who plays for Bristol City and Wales at under-17 level.

Also in attendance was Mary McAteer, a striker who Hawkins has coached since she was the age of five.

Now 15, McAteer plays for Bristol City, has played for Wales and recently gained her first England cap.

Hawxsport goalkeeping gloves were sold on the night with all proceeds going to Madison Shelby Trust, who specialise in still born bereavement, a cause close to Hawkins' heart.
