Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY AUG 1 - By TREVOR WIL­LIAMS

NEW­CAS­TLE have snapped up teenage Aus­tralian de­fender Cur­tis Good from Mel­bourne Heart.

The highly-rated 19-year-old cen­tre-back has signed a six-year deal at Toon fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful trial and will join up with his new team-mates this week when they re­turn from their trip to Por­tu­gal.

Good a grad­u­ate of the Aus­tralian In­sti­tute of Sport, made 25 ap­pear­ances for Mel­bourne Heart in his de­but A-League sea­son and has­rep­re­sented his coun­try at Un­der-19 level.

Heart boss John Aloisi said: “It’s a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for Cur tis to test him­self at one of the big­gest clubs in the United King­dom.

“This demon­strates the club’s abil­ity to as­sist in de­vel­op­ing play­ers to such an ex­tent that they’re able to move to one of Europe’s lead­ing com­pe­ti­tions.”
