Who We Are

Borja Loeches

Building the goalkeepers of the future

I started playing football at the age of 8 with my first season as a goalkeeper. Then, I  played in different positions until deciding to go back in goal when I was 12. Since then, I’ve played in Madrid (Spain) where at the age of 18 I suffered an injury that stopped me signing a professional contract with La liga team Getafe FC (Juvenil DH). In 2013 I moved to the UK, where in March that same year Reading FC showed interest in me. Since 3 seasons ago I have been playing semi-professionally in England. 

As a coach, my first coaching experience was 15 years ago as U15s Manager. Since then, I have worked for several teams as a Manager and as a Goalkeeper Coach in Spain and England.
