Game plan for 2 tall goalies which lack footwork/movement?

We have two tall goalkeepers which hold the space, does anyone have a game plan which suit two keepers who play similar games? They lack footwork and movement, and this needs improving!

I take it you mean that you have 2 players which are not really suited for GD so looking at what you can do to improve this?  Just keep running footwork drills with them.  Teach them about getting up and staying on the balls of their feet, lots of drills to do with fast foot movement, changes of direction, rebounding, defending from in front and staying with their player, intercepting.  If you do not have a back up GD then keep pushing them til one improves enough to be slotted into the GD role.  the other option is to teach them to shoot.  Any decent shooter should know how to defend as they should spend most of their time defending their goal circle, so they can keep the circle open for their pass into the circle.  so having a tall GK who can play shooter as well (even if not well)  is still not a bad backup plan.  but if it were me, id be running footwork drills with them til the cows came home (which is what im doing with my team right now.  my GK from last year, will be GD this year, and the whole team needs footwork drills after 6months off playing.  have some fun.
