Southampton Annouce Signing Of Former Arsenal Goalkeeper Stuart Taylor 

share on:

​Southampton have announced goalkeeper Stuart Taylor has joined the club on a one-year deal. 

Taylor will provide back-up for England ‘keeper Fraser Forster and summer signing Alex McCarthy at St Mary’s.

The 35-year-old has been a professional since 1997, when he progressed from the youth ranks at Arsenal, but he has never been a regular starter in his career.

Taylor made 30 appearances for the Gunners but is yet to pass 100 senior games in all competitions and was without a club last season, having been released by Leeds United at the end of the 2014-15 campaign.

Stuart Taylor said: “It’s fantastic to be here. I was in contact with Dave Watson and he’s a fantastic goalkeeping coach. When I got a call from him asking to come down, I was over the moon.

“I know a couple of the lads who are already here, so it helps to settle in and I’m looking forward to getting on with it and enjoying it.”
