We’ve been supplying grassroots football with beautiful football kits from the biggest brands since way back in 2005. We’ve had the privilege of printing literally millions of football shirts for thousands of clubs up and down this country and beyond.

However over the years we’ve noticed a slightly worrying trend, especially for the guys and girls between the sticks. And we want to put it right once and for all…

The neglect of the humble goalkeeper kit has to stop! All too often do we see the goalkeeper kit being an after thought to the main outfield shirts. No longer should keepers have to bring their own replica goalkeeper shirt on match days because you forgot to order them one. And no, they shouldn’t have to wear the same kit for the 9th season in a row, complete with faded number and out of date sponsor.

So, if you’re thinking of treating your team to a new kit this summer, then we highly recommend that you show your goalkeeper some love and have a browse of some of our featured goalkeeper products…

Goalkeeper Tops

When it comes to the top half of your goalkeeper ensemble then comfort, durability and range of movement are three things that you should always consider. The Nike Park IV Goalkeeper Jersey has all of those in abundance, with some beautifully styled design on top. It’s 5 colourways all feature retro inspired sleeve graphics which will have you channelling your inner Jorge Campos (Google him) in no time.

If you fancy really treating your keeper this season then nothing says “you’re my #1” like the Nike Gardien Goalkeeper Jersey. Available in both long and short sleeves, the Gardien is Nike’s premium goalkeeper shirt. If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on the Gardien Jersey then you can really see that it just oozes premium design. It’s textured, stretchy material offers maximum range of movement and is easy on the eye too.

Another pair of very worthy options from our other brands are the adidas Assita 17 Goalkeeper Jersey and Puma’s Liga Goalkeeper Shirt. Definitely worth a look.

Goalkeeper Shorts/Bottoms

Padded goalkeeper shorts are BACK! Yes, they may seem a little bit retro but when you’ve been diving around Sunday League goalmouths for 15+ years, a bit of protection for your creaking bones is welcome! The Nike Gardien I Goalkeeper Short was a new addition to Nike’s latest catalogue and welcomed by veteran keepers far and wide. And guess what, it also comes in a trouser! The Gardien I Pant offers the same protection, just a bit longer. Simple.

Alternative options are the adidas Tierro Goalkeeper Pant and the Joma Pirate ¾ Goalkeeper Pants, which are a real treasure… 🏴‍☠️

Goalkeeper Gloves

Now for the real tool of any keeper’s trade. His trusty goalkeeper gloves. Nike’s new Goalkeeper Match Gloves are unbelievable value and are also available in kids sizes. There are two colour options and they are both very nice indeed. Almost makes you want to take up goalkeeping yourself…

Looking for something a bit more specialist? Well, another option when it comes to keeping those precious hands protected is PEAK goalkeeping. Search ‘PEAK gloves’ on Kitlocker.com to check out their comprehensive range of goalkeeper gloves, worn by the likes of Norwich City’s Tim Krul and Hull City’s George Long.

No More Excuses!

Well you can’t say that you don’t know what to get them now! Check out all of the options above and more in our dedicated goalkeeper section of the site.

Whether you’re ordering your goalkeeper kit as part of a big team order, or just treating them to some new gear, all of our kits can be matched to your team identity. Either through our in house printing and embroidery service with club crests, sponsor logos and numbers, or one step further with #PowerUp.
