Give it a go!

Pembroke are always looking for new Goalkeepers so if you just want to "give it a go" this is just for you.

This is how it works we will give you a full training session as a goalkeeper, where you will be given the basic skills and of course you will be given the opportunity to play a training match.

Goalkeeper Gear

Pembroke supply keepers with up to date kit for Club games and training. This gear is looked after and we make sure all goalkeepers have gear that fits and gives them the maximum protection.

You can of course buy your gear in Pembroke from ED Sports. Make sure you check if he has any Pembroke deals going.
