Callum returns from England duty

4 September 2012

Young keeper capped again by under-17s

Young goalkeeper Callum Burton is back at the Greenhous Meadow after stepping on to the international stage with England's under-17s once again.
 
The Newport-born teenager took his number of under-17 caps up to four after appearing twice in the St George's Park International Tournament.
 
Callum enjoyed the experience of training alongside the county's best young players at the excellent new national training centre at Burton.
 
He attracted positive reviews for his display between the posts as he played the full game in a 4-1 victory over Turkey at Northampton's Sixfields Stadium in front of Town goalkeeping coach Gavin Ward.
 
Then he was introduced at half time for Sunday's slender 1-0 defeat against Portugal at Burton Albion's Pirelli Stadium.
 
Town manager Graham Turner said: "He played the full game against Turkey and Gavin Ward, who went to see him, told me he did quite well and made some good saves in the second half. 
 
"He then played half the match at the weekend and was in goal when the only goal was conceded but it was a great experience for him, especially with the set up of going to St George's Park and all that goes with that.
 
"He's doing extremely well."
