Toon Star Wants Trophies THIS Season!

Image result for Newcastle United Freddie WoodmanYoung Newcastle goalkeeper Freddie Woodman is targeting trophies in his loan spell with Aberdeen.

The 20-year-old joined the Dons on a loan deal until the end of the season on transfer deadline day and made his debut last Saturday, in their 3-0 win over Hamilton.

Derek McInnes’ side still retain slim hopes of beating Celtic to the Scottish Premiership title, while they are still in the Scottish Cup.

Aberdeen were beaten by Celtic in last year’s final and will move through to the quarter-finals this term - should they beat Dundee United on Sunday.

And Woodman is targeting his first honours at club level during his short stay in the North of Scotland.

“This club wants to win trophies and it is great to be involved in that. If I do get to play in the Scottish Cup I’ll be doing everything to help the club get the result it needs to progress.”

Former Kilmarnock loanee Woodman kept goal as England’s under-20s were crowned World Champions in South Korea last summer.

And he admits tasting success at youth level has given him the urge to win more trophies.

“Winning that trophy gave me a massive buzz and the realisation there is more to football than money and playing games. It’s about winning things and the feeling you get from winning a trophy is hard to describe.

“Winning that trophy was unbelievable and it has given me the urge to win more. I want more trophies.

Woodman continued: “It will be difficult to match being a World Cup winner but ask players how they win back to back league titles or Champions Leagues and they will tell you it’s the feeling of getting your hands on the trophy that drives you. You want it again and again and it becomes an obsession.

“It was an unbelievable experience last summer. We had a fantastic team. We went out there, did the business so professionally and it was a great learning experience but I don’t think I would have gone out to South Korea and performed like I did if I hadn’t gained that experience of playing in the Scottish Premiership.”
