    Awesome. Great news. A few good news stories recently. Hopefully this is all a pre-cursor to a great 19/20.

    Not able to watch the game but the Twitter consensus is that he's having an absolute blinder. Any foot.ie contributor able to verify?

    Just watched the first half of Bournemouth v spur. Mark travers is a real player. 5 excellent saves and he has composure to beat the band

    Mark Travers's start today, along with Michael Obafemi's appearances for Southampton FC, mean that 2018/19 is the first season since 2015/16 where two, or more, Ireland players under the age of 20 have appeared in the Premier League
    All goals, yellow and red cards tweeted in real time on twitter and facebook

    Very composed lots of a ton in first half good saves and good decisions. Looks assured with his feet. Real bonus seeing him involved you would imagine be will also play next week. I think another of there young keepers is on loan at Wimbledon and is first choice there so hopefully he is considered to be ahead of him

    Played very well, made some super saves, good positioning, decent distribution.

    Travers named Man of the Match by NBC on its North American feed. Not sure if that’s repeating an official decision by league or sponsor or its own thing. Promising debut alright.

    This is great stuff. I remember him being in Ireland underage squads and being listed as unattached to a club. I think he was with Rovers but trialled a lot in England for a spell?

    Interesting squad there. A lot of them have pushed their way into Kenny's under 21 plans.

    Highlights here. Seems to have been a game of two halves, the first half is basically a Travers highlights reel!

    More importantly he made it into Garth Crooks' team of the week. Lucas Moura will remember his name for a long time.

    'Did you know? Travers (aged 19 years 351 days) became the first teenage goalkeeper to start a Premier League game since Joe Hart for Manchester City in October 2006.'

    Interesting!

    Played again today against Palace and conceded five.A few nice saves and he was left a bit exposed by his defense all game.Might not be happy with a few of the goals,One save he pushed onto a defender for an OG.He seems to stay on his line sometimes when he could come and claim/punch it.That might just be a confidence thing and something to work on.Great to have a keeper playing in the premier league at a solid club, hopefully Eddie Howe sticks with him.If he can add some box-command to a clearly top-class shot-stopping ability then the kid could be fantastic for us.

    Alan Kelly reckons Travers could be the best goalkeeper we have: https://www.irishexaminer.com/breaki...nd-925857.html

    It'd be nice to have an obvious heir (or even challenger) to Randolph established over the next twelve months, with Kelleher, Bazunu and Corcoran still to break through

    He wouldn't have played lads, not even against Gibraltar., if you are going to be injured now is the time so he is ready for next season ( it sounds nasty though)
