FOUNDER

Jonathan Hedge

Jonathan is the founder of Save All Shots Goalkeeper coaching and has already established himself as one of the brightest young goalkeeper coaches in the Yorkshire area.
Jonathan currently holds his Level 1, 2 + 3 (UEFA ‘B’) outfield coaching badges as well as his Level 1,2 & 3 UEFA B Goalkeeping badges. He is currently working towards his UEFA A Licence Outfield coaching qualification. Jonathan is First Aid qualified, Child Protection qualified, holds a full clean CRB Check and is fully insured. He is also a member of the FA Licensed Coaches Club.

Jonathan began his playing career at the age of six when he joined his local Sunday League team Rawmarsh St Joseph’s. Jonathan spent 8 years with St Joseph’s before being scouted by Rotherham United FC. He spent six weeks training there before being offered a contract. After progressing through the age groups Jonathan was then offered a scholarship with Rotherham in 2004. Jonathan was a regular in the youth team and reserves throughout his two-year scholarship as well as making numerous appearances on the first team bench at the age of just seventeen.

Unfortunately for Jonathan he was released at the end of his scholarship due to financial issues at the club. Undeterred by this, at the start of the 2006-07 campaign Jonathan signed for Conference team Halifax Town where he was a member of the first team squad. Jonathan spent eighteen months at The Shay stadium before being released in early 2008.

Upon his release from Halifax Jonathan was then offered the opportunity to play and coach in Brisbane, Australia. He spent two months in Australia training with A –League side Brisbane Roar and playing for Mitchelton FC as well as coaching the young goalkeepers at the club.

On his return to the UK he signed for Conference North outfit Harrogate Town where he spent a successful season (2008-09) playing regularly.

During the summer of 2009 Jonathan made a return to The Shay and signed for FC Halifax Town (previously Halifax Town FC) after they were demoted three divisions for entering administration. The newly formed side started again in the Unibond First Division and Jonathan was a regular feature in their side, clocking up nearly 100 appearances as they won back-to-back promotions from the Unibond First Division (2009-10) and Unibond Premier Division (2010-11).

It was in November 2009 when Jonathan received his first England ‘C’ call-up for a friendly against Poland U23’s. Jonathan was the only player from a club below the Blue Square Premier League that was named in the England squad. Jonathan came on as a second-half substitute in Poland where they claimed a 2-1 win.

At the end of the 2010-11 season Jonathan was once again called up to the England ‘C’ squad for the International Challenge Trophy final against Portugal. Jonathan was an unused sub against a Portugal team that included players playing regularly in the Europa and Champions League.

It was in the summer of 2011 when Jonathan was offered the chance to once again be a full-time professional as Tamworth FC of the Blue Square Premier League offered him a contract. Jonathan thought the offer was too good to refuse and signed for the Lambs in readiness for the 2011-12 season. Jonathan enjoyed a highly successful season with Tamworth reaching the FA Cup Third Round to draw Everton at Goodison Park as well as representing England ‘C’ against Gibraltar (Friendly) and Italy (International Challenge Trophy Group Stage). Jonathan started both games and performed admirably.

After a successful season with Tamworth, fellow Blue Square Premier club Cambridge United came calling and signed Jonathan on a 2-year contract for an undisclosed fee. During the summer of 2012 Jonathan was once again named in the England ‘C’ squad for the International Challenge Trophy match against Russia U21’s in Moscow. Jonathan started the match, playing against players from top European clubs such as Real Madrid, CSKA Moscow and Spartak Moscow, who had the experience of playing in the Europa League and Champions League. England lost the game 4-0 which was held at the Khimky Arena (Dinamo Moscow’s home ground).

At the end of the 2012-13 season Jonathan was signed by fellow Conference National Club Grimsby Town where he played numerous games whilst reaching the Semi-Finals of both the Conference National Play-offs and the FA Trophy.

In the summer of 2014 Jonathan joined AFC Telford United who were newly-promoted to the Conference National league and he helped them reach the First Round of the FA Cup where they lost 1-0 away to Bristol City at Ashton Gate after conceding a 90th minute goal.

Jonathan is extremely passionate about coaching young goalkeepers and helping them make their dreams a reality. Jonathan has trained with many top class goalkeepers including Nick Pope (Burnley), Jed Steer (Aston Villa), Neil Sullivan (ex-Wimbledon, Tottenham) Ben Alnwick (ex-Sunderland, Tottenham, Bolton Wanderers) and Gary Woods (Aberdeen) as well as being coached by the likes of Simon Tracey (ex-Sheffield United) and Lee Butler (ex-Barnsley and Wigan Athletic, currently goalkeeping coach at Wrexham).

Throughout his career Jonathan has also played for many managers including Ronnie Moore, Alan Knill, Mick Harford, Mark Robins and Chris Wilder. In 2016 Jonathan was also asked to deliver a coaching session to England No1 Joe Hart as part of a Euro 2016 promotion for Nike.
