Jason Batty (born in Auckland, March 23, 1971) is a retired, successful New Zealand football goalkeeper who frequently represented his country in the 1990s. He later coached Dartmouth College in the U.S. and served as the Director of Goalkeeping for Texas Premier SC.

Club career

Batty made 12 appearances for the Football Kingz in their inaugral season in the NSL 1n 1999 before a brief spell in England with Grimsby Town on a non contract basis in October 2000. He failed to dislodge regular shot stopper Danny Coyne and understudy Steve Croudson. After only three months he left the club and joined Scunthorpe United on similar terms but left a few months later after failing to make an appearance. He then briefly played for Stalybridge Celtic.

He is currently the goalkeeper coach for the San Jose Earthquakes.[1]

International career

Batty made his New Zealand A-international debut in a 3-0 win over Singapore on February 21, 1995, and quickly became first choice goalkeeper.[2] He went on to collect 47 caps between 1995 and 2003.[3]

Honours

New Zealand Player of the Year: 1997[4]
