Reserve Team Manager Adam Sadler thinks Newcastle’s 6’4″ goalkeeper Fraser Forster can achieve whatever he wants to in the game of football.
Fraser Forster – making a name for himself with brilliant Reserve team displays
The Hexham born goalkeeper, who will turn 20 next month, had a fantastic game last night for the Reserves, in their 0-0 draw with top team Liverpool Reserves.
Adam Sadler says Fraser pulled off at least 10 top class saves, to keep a clean sheet, and certainly Liverpool had their chances, missed some, but couldnâ€™t beat Forster when they did get on target.
Itâ€™s often good to get the other sideâ€™s view of the game, and the Liverpool web-site report says their team left St. James Park last night wondering how they hadnâ€™t won the game fairly easily.
One particular double save from Forster on 57 minutes, was an unbelievable double stop from Krisztian Nemeth, and was reported this way by the Liverpool site:
Forster pulled off another sensational double save, first denying Nemeth’s stabbed effort from six yards before getting his foot in the way of the rebound to deflect it up on to the crossbar and away to safety.
Forster has been doing this all season in the Reserves, and as Adam says, he’s the most improved player at Newcastle, over the last 18 months, and apparently works his socks off in training and has a great attitude.
Reserve Team Manager Adam Sadler told Newcastle World TV:
“Fraser was unbelievable tonight,” “He has pulled off at least ten outstanding saves and I don’t know how he has made those two close range stops in the second-half.â€
“Fraser is thought of as the club’s most improved player over the past 18 months and it’s easy to see why.â€
“He is well on his way to becoming a top keeper and, most importantly, he has a terrific attitude to hard work.â€
“He can achieve whatever he wants to in the game and we’re lucky to have such a fantastic talent.”
Sadler is in the enviable position at Newcastle, where he is essentially in charge of the excellent youngsters we now have at the club, with more to arrive in the summer. Heâ€™s well thought of within the Newcastle club, and itâ€™s a great chance for Sadler to play a vital part in Newcastle’s re-emergence as a top team.
Certainly some of our youngsters give us great hope for the future, which is almost the opposite of some of our current crop of senior players.
There were the Busby Babes back in the 1950s, but with these youngsters likely to start pushing through to the first team, sooner rather than later, we’ll need to think of what to call them.
Any ideas? 😀
