Hill Praise For Taberner

Keith Hill

Rochdale Manager Keith Hill has praised debutant teenage goalkeeper Danny Taberner despite Tuesday night’s FA Cup exit at home to Luton Town at Spotland.

The 16 year old Apprentice replaced the injured Kenny Arthur for the televised first round replay in which Dale went down 2-0 at Spotland.

But speaking after the final whistle, Hill was fulsome in his praise of the youngster, he said:

“I’m really enthused by his distribution. He brought a little bit of maturity to his performance. It was sink or swim and he definitely swam.”

“He didn’t let himself down at all. Hopefully, it’ll give him a lot of self belief. He didn’t have that much to do. What he did he did tremendously.”

At just 16 years and 147 days, Taberner has eclipsed Stephen Bywater (now Derby County) record by 66 days as being the youngest keeper to play for Dale.
