Tozer settling in

Tozer settling in

Having made his bow at SJP in the reserve game against Man City last week, Ben Tozer is delighted so far with his move to the North East. Speaking to the Evening Chronicle he spoke of his happiness at the move and what he had experienced so far:

"It was brilliant to make my debut last week and to walk out at St James`s Park is fantastic. It was in front of some empty seats, so it would be amazing to do it in front of a full house. Man City was a tough game, but it was worthwhile after playing against some experienced players who are worth a lot of money.

Games like that are difficult and it took me a while to get into it, but in the end it was a good defensive display from all of us. He was probably one of my most difficult opponents, but at this level a lot of players are going to be in that category. All Premier League players are of a certain calibre and you don`t want to give them too much respect.

You know who they are and you know it`s going to be tough, so you have to be ready. It`s weird being around people you are used to seeing on TV or on the computer. You see them on TV one minute and the next you are standing next to them in training! You soon realise they are just one of us. At first you are thinking about them, but soon you think he might be wondering about me! It`s a good experience and I`m settling in well."
