KEEPER FULTON’S LEARN­ING CURVE

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Ben Baker

YOUNG goal­keeper Ryan Fulton ad­mits he is learn­ing all the time as he bids to make a suc­cess of his sea­son-long loan at Ch­ester­field.

The 20-year-old ar­rived at the Spire­ites from Liver­pool af­ter reg­u­lar No.1 Tommy Lee un­der­went shoul­der surgery.

Fulton, who played 13 times while on loan at Portsmouth last sea­son, has been be­tween the Ch­ester­field sticks for all bar one game this cam­paign, sit­ting out last month’s 2-1 Check­a­trade Tro­phy vic­tory over Wolves U21s.

And, as he goes from strength to strength, Fulton cred­its the in­jured Lee and man­ager Danny Wil­son for help­ing him to ad­just to life at the Proact Sta­dium so quickly.

“It’s great for me, great ex­pe­ri­ence. I’m learn­ing as the games and weeks go on,” he said.

“What’s hap­pened to Tommy is un­for­tu­nate for him, but I just came here to try to show what I’ve got and try to earn that place in the team.

“I’ve a great re­la­tion­ship with Tommy. He’s great for me. I can learn so much from him and he’s happy to help me. It will be a good fight for both of us when he comes back.

“The gaffer (Danny Wil­son) has given me loads of con­fi­dence for games.”
