Newcastle United Reserve goalkeeper Fraser Forster seems to be enjoying his time on loan with Stockport County.
Fraser Forster – on loan at Stockport County
Fraser has just had his first victory for Stockport County who are placed 11th of 24 teams in League One. The 20-year-old played his fourth game for Stockport and had an outstanding game during Tuesday’s 2-1 win at MK Dons.
If it hadn’t been for Forster Stockport would not have won, because he pulled of a terrific double save late in the game from striker Kevin Gallen, with the scores still level.
MK Dons defender Dean Lewington scored an own goal late in the game to give Stockport their victory. The Hexham-born keeper believes his short loan period at Edgeley Park will do him a lot of good as he continues to get first team games for his football development.
Fraser said today:
“I’m enjoying it down at Stockport and it’s great to get a taste of senior action,” “This sort of experience is invaluable and I’m confident I’ll return to Newcastle all the better for it.““It was great to get that first win and I’m delighted to be playing in the team.”
“I’ve had a good couple of years in terms of improving my game, but it’s important you don’t stand still and I’ve got to keep on pushing myself if I want to fulfill my dream of playing for Newcastle United.”
The report of last night’s game on the Stockport County web site had this to say about Fraser Forster:
County had to thank their own loan goalkeeper Fraser Forster for a string of fine saves, the best being a quite unbelievable double save from Kevin Gallen and Luke Chadwick after 83 minutes.
It’s good to see Fraser doing so well, but we all know by now he’s a fine young goalkeeper.
