Usually, we would represent a player throughout their career at the rate of 5% of gross annual salary (within the UK). This will raise to 10% if the transfer and contract negotiations are overseas. Usually, it is common practice that the club would settle the fee on behalf of the player.
On occasion, a specific fee structure will be agreed directly with a club again at no expense of any Goalkeeper
Fees at Non-league:
However, It is a well-known fact that within the game at non-league level, clubs below Step 1 do not usually pay agents fees and therefore the cost will then be required to be paid by the Goalkeeper.
However we do work to a straightforward system specifically for non league Goalkeepers. This works on a 10% fee of the Goalkeepers annual gross salary to be paid by the player. Often the deduction will be made from the club directly out of a player’s wages but in other cases a direct debit system is agreed between agent and player. In the case of a Goalkeeper signing non-contract terms with a club, then a £50 per month direct debit payment is taken as payment from the Goalkeeper for the agent services.
Ask yourself, is it a lot of money for a dedicated goalkeeping intermdiary looking after all your footballing interests, is it?
Darren Court, who developed the intermediary agency, was always a Goalkeeper at heart. As a scout, he was concerned that his scouting for the outfield players might not make him a successful intermediary in the game, but he has always been confident in spotting goalkeeping talent! Since then, we have established ourselves as the ‘go-to’ agency for goalkeepers across both the league and non-league game when recruiting goalkeeping talent. We appreciate that the goalkeeper performed a unique role to a football team and their need are often very different. After all, being a number 2 goalkeeper at a club is far different from being a second choice centre midfielder. We provide a tailor-made service to recognise how the uniqueness of the goalkeeping talent that we represent.
Because no other intermediary specialises in representing goalkeepers at both league and non- league level in the UK the way we do.
From a club’s perspective, why would they contact multiple football agents to solve a goalkeeping solution when they can come to a specialist goalkeeping agency with a large bank of goalkeepers at all levels? This is what has occurred. As a dedicated Goalkeepers Agent; we are the ‘one-stop-shop’ for the goalkeeping position across the UK. This saves clubs time and money. That is why we are now a significant intermediary for Goalkeepers in the UK game.
Wrong! And the question we then throw back at you is why wouldn’t you? We are in daily contact with professional GK coaches throughout the game. When a GK opportunity arises at a club, we have resolved it often BEFORE our competitors have even heard about it. This happens at all levels of the UK football pyramid. Not signing with us means we are not pushing profile. I also believe that we have the best network for Goalkeepers throughout the game.
