Underage goalkeepers seem to be in short supply in the county at the moment and with the recent development in kick out techniques the position is becoming one of the most important in the game nowadays.
After reading both Rory Kavanagh and Jimmy McGuinness over the holiday break it became even more apparrent the emphasis put on both Cluxton and Durcan's kick outs was central to both game plans. The man between the sticks is now a central figure in any team.
The Derry U17 football development squad are looking for goalkeepers for the Ulster league next season. The games will be played as double headers with the Ulster Minor League. The panel will be training on one of the minor training nights, with a similar strength & conditioning programme to be made available. There will be a direct link with the minor panel.

Players must be born in 1999 (i.e. be in their first year of minor). The aim of this squad is to develop players for the 2017 county minor squad.
