Keeper’s kicking drill - Issue 13 (August 2011)
Adrian Tucker is the goalkeeping coach at Barclays Premier League side Swansea City.
The 34-year-old joined the Swans in July 2009 after 12 years with the technical department of the Welsh Football Trust, and works exclusively with the club’s goalkeeping talent.
As a player, Tucker was forced to retire from the professional game because of a shoulder injury, but continued to play for semi-professional sides including Ebbw Vale, Inter Cardiff, Aberystwyth and Merthyr Tydfil.
And the Welshman, who is one of only three people in Wales to hold the UEFA Pro Licence with the goalkeeping ‘A’ grade, also enjoyed a successful period in charge of the Wales women’s football side.
