Wolves U23 boss Collins praises summer signing Moulden

Louie Moulden signed for Wolves from Manchester City on a free transfer this summer.

Moulden started between the sticks as the Old Gold Under 23 side kicked off their campaign on Monday night.

He was unable to keep a clean sheet but Wolves won 2-1 against Middlesbrough.

Under 23 boss James Collins hailed Moulden’s debut in an interview with the club website.

“He’s an excellent goalkeeper and he’s got a real personality and character,” said Collins of Moulden.

“I haven’t seen much of him in training because he’s been down with the first-team.

“But we saw him when he came in on trial at the end of last season, and I thought he was excellent [against Middlesbrough].

“It always gives you confidence when you’ve got a good goalkeeper in there.”

Moulden has clearly made a good first impression after his summer move and has a bright future.

It’s tough for young goalkeepers to force their way into Premier League sides, although that will be his long-term goal.

He may need a loan at some point, but perhaps this year he’ll be the Under 23s first choice and develop there.
