Goalkeeper is Streets ahead with Golden Glove award

June 6, 2019

After winning the Golden Glove in King's Lynn Town's promotion-winning campaign, goalkeeper Alex Street has spoken about his award and turned his thoughts to next season.
Although goalkeepers may not receive the same level of admiration as goalscorers, the 27-year-old has become an integral part of the Lynn set-up over the past few seasons.
Street has kept 127 shut-outs in 422 appearances between the posts and on his Golden Gloves accolade he said: "It's nice to win it, especially after the start we had.
"It's the first Golden Glove that I've ever won and hopefully we can go on and keep a few more clean sheets next season."
Now, with the help of assistant manager and record-breaking goalkeeper Paul Bastock, the hometown shotstopper can start to focus on playing at the highest level of football in his career.
"I can't wait," admitted Street.
"It's a new level and a new standard, but hopefully we can kick on and have a real go at it.
"We've got to learn the league very quickly and we know that there will be a difference in quality.
"I would like to go for 10-plus clean sheets, which I think is achievable, but I’ll have to be at my best every week."
Street was one of the last players from last season's squad to agree a deal for next term and director of football Robbie Back said: "Getting Peds to sign is massive for us. There are not enough superlatives for him.
"He was the best goalkeeper in the Southern League last season and is perhaps one of the best goalkeepers the club has ever had, so it was vital to get him to sign.
"As well as being a very good goalkeeper, he is liked by everyone at the club and he also plays a huge part in the dressing room."
