Rob Street: "I'm absolutely buzzing to get started"

26 January 2022

New arrival Rob Street expressed his excitement at joining the club in his first interview since becoming an Exile.

The 20-year-old arrives at Rodney Parade on a loan deal until the end of the season from Premier League Crystal Palace.

Street is a highly-rated prospect from the Academy at Selhurst Park and has scored six goals in 14 goals in Premier League 2 for the Eagles this season. 

He began by saying it was a "no-brainer" to join the set-up at Rodney Parade.

"I heard that Newport were interested and it was a no-brainer to get down here. It's been a few good days speaking to [James Rowberry], I'm feeling really positive," Street said.

"The ambition of the club, the position in the league table and the boys [convinced him to join]. The gaffer says it's a real good squad, a real ambitious squad. I justwant to jump on board and hopefully get promotion."

Competition for places will be tough for Street, with Dom Telford leading the scoring charts in League Two while Courtney Baker-Richardson is also in impressive form contributing eight goals this season. Streets wants to "push people and himself" in order to make an impact in South Wales.

"I want to push people and push myself to get into the team. I try and offer a bit of everything, I like to run in behind , get on the end of crosses. I can link play, I try to do all the basics really well and put the ball in the back of the net.

"I'm absolutely buzzing to get started at a big club like this. I'm really looking forward to it, has great ambitions and it's a real good opportunity for myself. I'm going to have to up my level and improve on every aspect."
