Ahead of the new season, local amateur James Dobson was invited to The Quarters Training Ground, to spend a day training with our first team goalkeeper coach Tony Warner and star Jed Ward.
James was invited down to the training ground to experience a professional goalkeeping coaching session and get tips on how to save energy on and off the pitch. The session included how to control head positioning and footwork, two touch and ear flicks, how to save energy when moving from one side of the goal to another and how to preserve mental energy in a tough game, as well as learning about simple changes he could make to control energy off the pitch such as getting a smart meter installed in his home.
“It’s opened my eyes to a lot of new ideas, and I’m looking forward to taking them back to my club now.
“I was also really interested to learn about controlling energy off the pitch at home and the benefits of getting a smart meter installed, and other small ways I can save energy at home -like turning my TV off standby and not overcharging my phone!” said James
The training session was organised as part of Smart Energy GB and EFL’s ‘Save Like a Pro’ campaign, which highlights how getting a smart meter installed can help people make small changes at home to save energy and be more in control of their energy bills.
The in-home display that comes with smart meter shows in near-real time the amount of energy you use in pounds and pence give better control over energy usage, so users can see where they can be more efficient, budget more easily and be more in control of their bills.
