Travers Ready For First Team Push

Travers Ready For First Team Push

Bournemouth’s Mark Travers has targeted starting next season as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper but he may yet go out on loan.

The teenager excelled on his Premier League debut when he kept a clean sheet in their 1-0 victory over Tottenham, but endured a more difficult afternoon on Sunday when Crystal Palace won 5-3 at Selhurst Park.

There remains uncertainty about Bournemouth’s goalkeeping hierarchy given the inconsistency of Asmir Begovic and Artur Boruc, contributing to the 19-year-old Travers being given his chance, and the Irishman hopes that a conversation with Eddie Howe will confirm that further chances will follow.

Travers will planning to speak to Bournemouth’s manager when the first-team squad return for pre-season. “I’ll do that in the off-season.

We’ll have a bit of time off and it’s go from there, really,” Travers said. “I’ve felt comfortable and confident out on the pitch in the last two Premier League games. It’s something I know I can do.

Maybe I’ll get a bit of loan experience; I’ll just have to wait and see. “But if the manager decides to give me a few more games I’m ready to play.

I just want to keep going. I want to play more games. “I still need to reflect on the season and take from that into the off-season. I need to come in pre-season, give 100 per cent, then it’s down to the manager.”
