Here at Firstaid4sport we have been supporting our local club Lincoln City Football Club for many years. Recently we had a chat with Goal Keepers Paul Farman and Ross Etheridge, to find out how he wraps his hands for matches. When it comes to Goal Keepers, we know that they all use various tapes on their hands and fingers, however, there is no rules, guidelines or recognised methods on how this should be done.
So we asked Paul Farman and Ross Etheridge what tape and technique they both use. From the videos below you will see they both use very different methods to protect and support their hands.
Paul Farman chooses only to wrap his wrists, unless he has recently sustained an injury to a finger, whereas Ross Etheridge has a much more comprehensive taping routine.
