Coyle Plays With New Keeper

Coyle Plays With New Keeper

The Clarets have today signed 20 year old goalkeeper Jonathan Lund following a trial at Turf Moor. He has signed a one-year contract.



The former Leeds United and Grimsby stopper will feature in tonight's reserve game against Liverpool's second-string to be played at Tranmere`s Prenton Park. He will be keen to impress his new gaffer and will get the ideal opportunity to do so close up.

Injuries and the international break mean the Clarets have a number of players unavailable giving Owen Coyle the chance once more to play in the Reserves up front and pass on his valuable experience to the youngsters.

The signing of a new keeper is bound to cast doubt on the long-term future of Diego Penny who has had limited opportunities in the first team since arriving from Peru in Summer 2008. The recent injury to Brian Jensen, which turned out to be just a deadleg and in the end did not involve him missing any games perhaps brought it home to Owen Coyle, Phil Hughes and others that we needed additional cover between the sticks.

The Clarets have been linked previously to this keeper so perhaps the signing is not totally unexpected.Lund has in fact twice been on trial with the club, and played for the reserves last season against Carlisle and Morecambe. He has played for most of his professional career with his hometown club, Leeds United but never made his first team debut. Lund signed a short contract with League 2 side, Grimsby in March 2009 after impressing the Mariners gaffer,Mike Newell.

Cant say I am surprised we have brought in another keeper. I just dont think either the fans or the club appear to have much confidence in Penny at the moment

Right age but with Leeds and Grimsby failing to offer to him a contract, can you see us offering him one?

Not sure he has had much opportunity yet to play anywhere to be honest. He was understudy at Grimsby as well and was brought in as cover for Wayne Henderson who was on loan there at the time from Preston. Coyle&Hughes must have seen something in Lund after two trials to go ahead and sign him but then it is only a short-term deal

Right I missed the bit at the top a one year deal, your right they must have seen something in him, I can't see this boosting Pennys confidence up any! who knows!

Was hoping to watch Lund play for Grimsby town when as I knew he had been training with Burnley with a view to us signing him after Leeds dumped him, but he never got a game for Town so just saw him warming up on the pitch. Not convinced he is good enough to be our number two at the moment but he is still very young for a keeper, so may develop into a top keeper yet.

Most on here know I would give Penny a chance before casting him adrift, but I guess what I don't see or know is how Penny performs in training and reserve games? In OC I trust.

Lund did OK in the Reserve game last night, watched a bit on Liverpool's channel via Sky. We nearly held out 0-0 too but fell to a free kick in last minute of added time

The Sun newpaper have done a bit of a write up on last nights game, fail to mention new keeper, its more about Coyle playing. Cartoonized it, its quite good really.
