24 year-old Curtis Good has been at Newcastle now for five years after signing for us for £400K from Melbourne Heart in the summer of 2012.
Unfortunately Curtis has been injured a lot of the time he’s been on Tyneside, but when he does play he’s a good player, but his development has simply been continually dogged by injury.
Curtis Good – injured again
The U23 side were knocked out of the Premier League Cup at the quarter-final stage by Reading (0-1) at Whitley Park on Monday, which was a pity.
And Curtis was injured and had to be subbed early in the second half and that seemed to upset the balance of the Newcastle side.
This is what Development Peter Beardsley said after the game:
“Losing Curtis early on in the second half was a big blow to us, and hopefully it’s something minor.”
“That, for me, is the big disappointment of the game really.” “It would have been nice to win, but losing someone like Curtis is probably the biggest disappointment.”
“He’s been injury-free for a while now, and has been outstanding for a while, so it’s disappointing for him.”
“Hopefully it’s something minor.”
We all hope it is something minor, but something tells us that Curtis does not have a future at Newcastle and will likely be released when his contract runs out next year at the end of June.
It’s a pity because when he does play he is a good player so maybe he’s sent out on loan next season to a Championship club to get a chance to prove himself?
