Young goalkeeper Jordan Wright says he has returned to Nottingham Forest a better player, and a different person, following a short loan spell at Kettering Town.

The teenager joined the Evo-Stik Northern League Southern Division side on a month-long youth loan back in September.

He is now back at the City Ground and played his part in a 1-1 draw for the Reds’ Under-23s against Leeds United at the City Ground.

“It was really good and good experience for myself – playing week in, week out for a different sort of team,” Wright said of his time at Kettering.

“You’re not passing, passing, like you are here; you’ve got to be more vocal, more commanding, stronger in everything you do and more aggressive in everything you do.

“There’s more balls into the box, more crosses to deal with. You’ve got to adapt to that sort of game and just play the best you can.

“I feel like I’ve come back better from being on loan. It’s given me good experience, seeing a different side of the game.

“From doing that and then coming back to play here, I think I’ve changed as a person as well.”
