Soccer goalkeeper glove
Patent No. 6,772,441
Issued: August 10, 2004
Inventor: Lucas, Jr.; Alfred W. (79 Cheese Factory Rd., Honeoye Falls, NY 14472)
A palm face of a soccer goalkeeper glove is provided with a strand mesh secured at wrist and fingertip regions to strengthen back bending resistance of the thumb and fingers of the glove. The mesh can extend across spaces between the thumb and fingers of the glove, and can extend over fingertip regions of the glove to be bonded to back sides of the fingertip regions. The strand mesh can have screen or other configurations, and can be formed in a continuous laminate extending over the palm face of the glove. The goal is to reduce injuries from back bending of a goalkeeper's fingers from impact by soccer balls traveling at high velocities.
