- Goalkeeper touches on going out on loan and First Team involvement

Having recently returned from his loan with Salford City, our B Team goalkeeper Jacob Chapman was back in action for Town this afternoon, captaining the side for the first time.

Discussing his involvement in the game, the young Australian goalkeeper said:

“It was good to play, it was good to get 90 minutes as well.

“I felt good in the game, it hasn’t been too long between my last game and now.

“There’s a few things I was happy with and a few things I want to look back on, but overall it was good to be back out there.”

Having been given the responsibility of wearing the captain’s armband, Chapman said he enjoyed the experience and would welcome it again in the future.

“I like being a leader in the team, and I don’t think I’ve been captain since my dad was my coach! It’s been a while, but it’s cool – you have an added responsibility but I like it.

“If I could be captain every game I would be, that’s the type of player I want and aspire to be. First time today to captain in a Town shirt, so I appreciate that a lot.”

A busy first half of the season for Chappers, the goalkeeper has been on loan with Salford City following a stint with Gateshead last season, coming back to the Club and being named on the bench for the first team straight away.

Discussing those experiences, he said:

“It was really good to go out on loan with Salford, they were top, I had a really good experience and it was good make my Football League debut and get a good run in the cup as well.

“There were a few really experienced professionals there and coaches that I was able to learn from, so overall it was really good and I can build on that.

“It’s always a privilege to be in and around the First Team and in the squad.

“I thought we did really well and were so unlucky to concede when we need.

“Big Nick did really well and I’m sure he’s been told that a hundred times, but it was another great experience and hopefully I get more opportunities in the future.

“I want to play games as much as possible and be consistent, take what I’ve learned from my last two loans and build on that.”
