Keeper interviewed in Newport programme
He has shown a composure more recognisable in players with plenty of experience under their belts.
So you could be forgiven for forgetting that Ryan Fulton had not made a senior appearance before he arrived at Fratton Park.
The teenage stopper has made 11 appearances since signing on loan from Liverpool in January.
And he is enjoying the opportunity to play regular first team football at a club pushing for promotion.
“When you’re playing under-21 games it’s all about development, but being here is completely different,” says Fulton in the official matchday magazine for Saturday’s clash with Newport.
“It hurts that much more when you’re defeated or concede a late equaliser.
“To be able to play football with such big and noisy crowds is absolutely amazing. The fans are brilliant and there’s a lot of quality in the side, so it doesn’t really seem like I’m at a League Two club.
“Pompey has so much history and it feels like you’re at a big place whenever you run out at Fratton Park, so hopefully we won’t be at this level for much longer.”
To read the full interview – where Fulton also discusses keeping clean sheets and his Liverpool future – pick up a copy of the matchday magazine from programme sellers around the ground on Saturday.
Also in issue 24, Gary Roberts dishes the dirt on his team-mates and Enda Stevens selects his dream team.
