Newboy is ready to make a TV debut
New Posh goalkeeper Luke McGee is ready to make his Football League debut after serving an 11-year apprenticeship at Spurs. McGee, who is 21 tomorrow (Friday), has been at White Hart Lane since the age of 10.
He’s played regular reserve teamandunder21football for the North London giants and graduated to the first-team squad for the last two seasons without managing to make a senior appearance.
But McGee i s happy to break those Spurs ties for the chancetoexperiencecompetitive first-teamfootball for the first time.
Andif his first taste is a live televised game against Swindon on Saturday, so much the better!
“That would be an i nteresting debut,” McGee admitted.”I’d certainly be up fotr that! But I suspect I will have to train my way into the starting line-up.
“The move came about very quickly. I heard of Peterborough’sinterest onMonday, metthemanagerandwatched thegameonTuesdayandthen signed yesterday.
“I’mlookingforwardtogetting stuck in. MarkTyler (currentPoshgoalkeeper) hastons of experience so training with him and learning from him can only do me good.
“I’ve been at Spurs since I was 10 and for the last couple of seasons I’ve been training with the first-team which has been a great experience.
“I’ve seen the odd half of first-team action in pre-season matches so I can’t wait to get stuck into League One. It’s a different standard andadif- Posh 9 ferent style, but I’m sure I will be able to adapt.
“I believe I’m ready to play at this level and the manager has told me to knuckle down and fight for the right to play so that’s exactly what I will do.
“I believe in training as hard as possible every single day because you never know what’s around the corner.
“As a goalkeeper you have to be ready to play at a moment’s notice.
“I settled in straight away here. I played with Shaquile Coulthirst at Spurs for years and I know Lee Angol very well. I was also with (Swindon keeper) Lawrence Vigouroux at Spurssoit wouldbeperfect if I did get a run out on Saturday.”
Swindon have three players, Yasir Kasim(Iraq), Jordan Stewart and Jamie SendlesWhite (Northern Ireland), away on international duty this weekend.
