Amos heads out on loan as Ferguson Jnr calls in a favour

Posted by nickogs20 on October 29, 2009

United’s England Under-20 goalkeeper Ben Amos has joined Peterborough United on a one-month emergency loan deal.

With regular first-choice ‘keeper Joe Lewis suspended after a red card in the Posh’s Carling Cup defeat to Blackburn Rovers midweek, boss Darren Ferguson has turned to his father for reinforcement, choosing to bring in Amos to start this weekend’s home Championship clash with Barnsley rather than relying on youngster James McKeown.

Amos is likely to be relegated to a bench role when Lewis returns from his one-game ban, but a first spell out on loan and a month of experience as part of a senior setup will still be very useful experience for the 19 year-old, whose sole senior appearance thus far came for the Reds against Middlesbrough in last season’s Carling Cup.
