The Keeping Goals Podcast follows the life of Conor O'Keefe, a professional Goalkeeper from the UK, as he discusses the reality of a career in football, and the highs and lows of playing between the posts. With topic discussions, exclusive accounts, and in-depth interviews, The Keeping Goals Podcast will share with you every step of life as a Goalkeeper, and aim to bring you value with each episode.
