Briggs Signs New Fulham Deal!

Having been the youngest ever player in the Premier League, Matthew Briggs has seen his progress somewhat hampered by injury.

Thankfully, Matthew is nearing a return and the news has also filtered through that the nineteen year old has signed a new deal to keep him at Craven Cottage.

Talking to the official site, Matthew has explained how things have been going, commenting,

'I'm really pleased.'

'I've been at Fulham since I was ten years old."

'I was offered the contract last week and we've been doing a medical. It was a case of getting that sorted and then signing on the dotted line."

'I vaguely remember my debut against Middlesbrough to be honest. I remember being told to warm up and getting butterflies in my stomach - I just couldn't wait to get on."

'I thought I was going to be in the squad a bit more the following season after making my debut against Middlesbrough, but it wasn't to be. It's been a bit frustrating with different managers, having to prove myself again and again."

"Since Mark Hughes has arrived I've pushed my foot through the door a little bit. If Mark Hughes likes you as a player and you're performing well in training then he will play you and starting against Chelsea was a great experience for me."

'It was against Arsenal that I got a problem in both calves. The muscles swelled up and there wasn't a lot of room for them to move together, so I had to have an operation to release the pressure in both calves."

'I'm hoping to get back in the match day squad again before the end of the season and get a few games. I've had a few setbacks along the way with injuries but that will make me stronger in the long run.'


It`s always good news when a promising youngster commits himself to life at Fulham!

does that sound like a freak injury to anyone else but me? has anyone else even heard of that happening?

Good lad, he has a lot of potential. Lets hope Sparky will give him some games in the run up to next season. Think this season will be a bit too early.

do footballers pick up more injuries these days than in the past?
