Young Australian Defender On 10 Day Trial At Newcastle


News that Melbourne Heart defender Curtis Good is on his way over to England for a trial with Newcastle United.

Curtis Good – to have 1-0 day trial at Newcastle United

The 19 year-old 6’2″ central defender,  is coming to Newcastle for a 10-day trial, so we suppose Newcastle also have scouts down under.

The left-footed central defender has looked good in his very first season in the A-League, and he joined the Heart from the AIS in February of last year, after he had looked impressive for AIS.

Curtis only tuned 19 last month,  and he has already played 3 times for the Australian U20 side, so he would be one for the future at Newcastle.

General manager John Didulica, whose club was founded four years ago,  confirmed the 19-year-old had just left for a trial at the famous St. James’ Park club, as he tweeted:

“Curtis Good left last night for a 10-day trial with EPL’s Newcastle United.”

Good has made 25 appearances with one goal for the Heart this season, as he replaced the departed Adrian Madaschi.

The ball-playing defender has just recently signed a multi-year contract  with the Heart, who unfortunately play in red and white stripes.

And as fate would have it,  Good made his debut for the Melbourne Heart against the Newcastle Jets in the first game of the 2011–12 Hyundai A-League season.

We’ll have to see how well this lad does at Newcastle over the next week or so.

Comments welcome.
