NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 3/03/2017

Wellington Phoenix have promoted youth squad goalkeeper Oliver Sail, handing him a two-year professional deal.

The 21-year-old, who has thrice served as the side's back-up goalkeeper, says he's keen to continue learning from club stalwart and No.1 Glen Moss.

"He's a great goalkeeper, a fantastic mentor and role model, who has had a terrific career and is still going strong," Sail said.

"It's a fantastic opportunity for me and I intend on putting my best foot forward every week."

Sail played both football and rugby for much of his childhood in Auckland before focusing exclusively on the round ball in his teens.
