Jack Rose joins Crawley on loan

Stopper to stay with Town until the end of the season

ALBION ‘keeper Jack Rose has joined the trail of young players gaining experience in the lower divisions by joining Crawley Town on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old can be recalled by his parent Club after 28 days.

Jack, who was Boaz Myhill’s understudy for half of last season’s campaign while Ben Foster was recovering from knee surgery, can’t wait to get started.

“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 just want to play as much as I can. 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. But if you’re going to play in front of 50,000 you’ve got to be able to play in front of 5,000.”

Albion have also agreed to a youth loan for another of the Club’s fledgling keepers, first year Scholar Bradley House, who is joining promotion-chasing Evo-Stik Southern League outfit Banbury United. Bradley also has a 28-day recall.
