How can you dry your goalkeeper gloves quickly?
Make sure that you squeeze out as much water as possible from the gloves. You want to minimize the amount of moisture in the glove so that it will dry quickly.
Hang the glove on a coathanger or a line where the excess water can drip out.
You can also place paper (such as newspaper) inside the gloves to absorb the excess moisture.
Dry the gloves separately. So make sure if they are hanging on the same line or coathanger, that they are on opposite ends to each other.

You should expect them to dry in 24-36h.
