ROSE IS KEEN TO PICK UP ABUSE!
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.”
