Cornell Delighted To Sign New Long Term Deal

Cornell Delighted To Sign New Long Term Deal

Young goalkeeper David Cornell was delighted to sign a new 3 and-a-half year deal with his home-town club.

The 18 year-old extends his stay at the Liberty Stadium until 2013 and he told the Evening Post:

'It's brilliant,'

'I'm just happy to sign for the club I love and to stay here for another three-and-a-half years.'

'I started as a 13-year-old at the club, then I got released only to return a year later, and I've been here ever since,' he explained.

Cornell has been fortunate enough to work with a number of experienced individuals — goalkeeping coach Adrian Tucker and his predecessor, Inaki Bergara, have helped aid his development, as has current number one Dorus de Vries.

'Dorus is one of the best goalkeepers in the Championship, and being able to train with him really helps me out a lot,' Cornell said.

'You pick up everything from him and even in games his level of consistency is very good. Hopefully I can pick up as much as I can from him to improve my own game.'


Cornell has made just one senior start since coming through the youth ranks at the club, playing in 2-1 home defeat to Scunthorpe in the League Cup in 2008.
