In Saturday’s bumper 84-page issue of Seagull, we highlight the Goalkeepers’ Union at the club.
Cover star David Stockdale takes a candid look at his opening four months at the club; the reasons why he struggled to hit top form in his opening games, the reaction on social media and why he’s now getting back to his best. He also reflects on his time at Saturday’s visitors Fulham.
Fellow keeper Christian Walton reveals the person behind the player while Casper Ankergren already has one eye on the future.
