Nathan Deam, who was at J4K for 4 years before moving to Man City has been on trial at Grimsby Town FC.
Read his match report: well done Nathan:
How this lad is not at a professional club beggars beyond belief but while our pro clubs seem to give medicore foregein keepers the nod before our own wonderful talent, English keepers like nathan just have to knuckle down before something is done.
Joe hart is a classic example of what England can produce given the chance!!
so come on PRO clubs, stop settling for medicore keepers from other lands, and give our own talent a chance. You never know, you could unearth another Joe hart!!
Nathan match report:
Nathan Dean, The trialist for Town was in inspired form and he pulled off a number of top saves as the Whites piled on the pressure. Grella saw a header tipped over from close range before McCormack got in on the left, only to see his curling effort wonderfully tipped around the post by Dean's fingertips.
As the game moved into the last 20 minutes the Mariners made some changes with Ross Gardner replacing scorer Dixon and Leary departing to be replaced by young trialist David Deane.
Still United kept coming though and Clayton wasted a golden chance on 74 minutes when he blazed over with a volley after being left unmarked at a corner.
Town were looking dangerous on the break and they nearly added a second as the game moved into the final ten minutes. Substitute Gardner slipped the ball through for Fuller but his lofted effort proved no problem for Paulat-Brigg.
An equaliser for the visitors finally came on 87 minutes. Another cross from the left was header goalwards by Grella and Dean did superbly to acrobatically tip the effort onto the underside of the bar but unfortunately for Town; Scottish International McCormack was on hand to nod home the rebound.
The game moved into injury time and there were loud shouts for a penalty from the visitors when McCormack went down under a challenge from Gray but referee Mr Ross waved away the appeals.
The last action of the night fittingly went to Dean as he punched a free kick clear under pressure with both sides settling for a point in an entertaining game.
