The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Paul El­li­son

JACK ROSE in­sists he is ready to ex­pe­ri­ence ‘real football’ af­ter join­ing Craw­ley Town on loan un­til the end of the sea­son.

The 21-year-old goal­keeper has signed from West Bromwich Al­bion, where he has been on the bench for 20 Premier League matches this sea­son, to re­place Paul Jones, who has now re­turned to Portsmouth.

Rose is yet to make his de­but for the Bag­gies, though he did spend time on loan at Ac­cring­ton in 2014 and claims that he is champ­ing at the bit to get some ac­tion.

“It’s a great chance to play in games which re­ally mean some­thing, to get ex­pe­ri­ence, get some abuse and taste real football in front of fans who will be des­per­ate for the re­sult,” said Rose.

“I didn’t dream last sea­son I would be on the bench for 20 Premier League games and that has re­ally whet­ted the ap­petite.

“Go­ing to places like Old Traf­ford last sea­son and tast­ing that at­mos­phere was a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence and makes you want it even more.”
