New Player Sets Sights On First Team Place Next Season

Saturday, July 4th, 2015 · 31 Comments

We watched Karl Darlow’s nufcTV interview yesterday, and the 24 year-old came over very well – and he’s positive but also down to earth.

It will be a big challenge for the goalkeeper who played 111 times for the Nottingham Forest first team, and 18 other first team games while on loan at Walsall and Newport County.

Karl will now go up against Tim Krul and Rob Elliot to be the number one at Newcastle United in the coming season.
