Meet The Real Football Heroes, WIN FA Cup Final Tickets With E.ON – No.4: Neil from Manchester

The FA Cup final is almost upon us and Portsmouth and Chelsea will soon be battling to win the world’s premier domestic cup competition. Along with the FA Cup sponsor E.ON, we think this is a great time to salute some of football’s unsung heroes, specifically goalkeepers. They may be stars of tomorrow, or just players who have given a lot back to their community. So over the next few weeks we are going to highlight some very special individuals.

Today’s hero is a man who is not only a classy keeper, he dedicates four nights a week to coaching young keepers too. Neil Gillespie is a goalkeeper and manager at Manchester Gregorian’s FC; a step 7 club in the Manchester league and he trains with them two nights a week. For four nights a week though you can find him coaching the club’s youngsters. His ambition is to get the chance to work alongside professional so he can not only sharpen his skills but also pass them on to the club’s kids. Sounds like a top bloke.

You can find more unsung heroes on E.ON’s Great Saves site by clicking here. There’s lots of really cool stuff including competitions and information about the Life between the Sticks exhibition at the Getty Images Gallery in London.”
