Learning to ‘Save like a pro’ with Louis Jones

23 September 2021

Ahead of the 2021/22 season, local amateur keeper Mark Oakes was invited to the Keepmoat Stadium to spend a day training with Louis Jones.

Mark was invited down to the stadium to experience a professional goalkeeping coaching session put on by goalkeeping coach Paul Gerrard and get tips on how to save energy on and off the pitch.

The session activities to help save energy when moving from one side of the goal to another, as well as learning about simple changes he could make to control energy off the pitch such as getting a smart meter installed in his home.

The training session was organised as part of Smart Energy GB and EFL’s ‘Save Like a Pro’ campaign, which highlights how getting a smart meter installed can help people make small changes at home to save energy and be more in control of their energy bills.

Mark said: “I’m so happy to be involved in 'Save Like a Pro', it’s a good experience and it’s useful to be doing this kind of thing and learning from a professional goalkeeper. The key lesson that I learned was knowing how to position myself without wasting energy, I’m going to put this into my game and hopefully it’ll take me up to the next level.

“Control is so important to a goalkeeper’s performance, it’s the hardest position to play on the pitch, you’ve got to concentrate for the full 90 minutes, you could do nothing all game and then in the final minutes you may need to be prepared to save your team.”

The training session was organised as part of Smart Energy GB and EFL’s ‘Save Like a Pro’ campaign, which highlights how getting a smart meter installed can help people make small changes at home to save energy and be more in control of their energy bills.

The in-home display that comes with smart meter shows in near-real time the amount of energy you use in pounds and pence give better control over energy usage, so users can see where they can be more efficient, budget more easily and be more in control of their bills.
