Guest smoggeordie Posted May 11, 2007 Share Posted May 11, 2007 TEENAGE goalkeeper Fraser Forster has put pen to paper on a new two year contract at Newcastle United. The 19-year-old graduated from the Magpies academy this year and has been rewarded with a new deal which will keep him at St.James' Park until 2009. Forster was an unused substitute for United's senior side during the goalless draw with Eintracht Frankfurt in November, and the 6ft 4ins stopper has now set his sights on more first team action. Fraser told nufc.co.uk: "Being a local lad I'm delighted to sign the contract and it's a proud moment for all my family. "I was playing schoolboy football a couple of years ago and I've come a long way since then. "I'm working with Shay, Steve and Pav every day now in training and it's fantastic to learn from them. "Terry Genoe has also been brilliant and I feel I'm getting better all of the time. "Hopefully next year I can maybe get a couple of first-team games, but I just want to play as many times as possible and keep on improving." ------------------------------------------ Fuck me there's hope for us all when this goon gets a pro deal!
