Finger Protection is something that we see over 80% of American Goalkeepers wear, one question we get a lot is - what about the thumb? Many Keepers don't understand why all gloves don't come with thumb protection.
The answer is quite simple, but can be broken down like this
The only instance where we would recommend a thumbsave is in the case of a pre-existing injury, and then we would most likely recommend taping your thumb over a fingersave!
If you feel you need thumb protection you can add it to almost any glove, except gloves that have wrap over/wrap under thumb (as we stitch the thumb and there is no pocket).
Also remember that fingersaves are not the cure all against injury, we recommend doing exercises to increase hand strength in younger keepers! If you have any questions about Finger or Thumbsaves you can always shoot the West Coast team a question at Contact@WestCoastGoalkeeping.com or on twitter @WestCoastGK -

We have a motto we say here at West Coast, 'the only difference is skill.' What we mean by that is we work really hard to make sure every keeper has Amazing Quality, Pro Gloves at a great price! So the only difference between you and that top level Pro is Skill.
The new wider wrist strap hides an extended palm to help with control of the ball and playing out of the back, we are confident you will love it!
