High hopes: Ollie Webber is aiming to make a major impact

Ollie Webber has revealed that establishing himself as Northern Ireland's first choice goalkeeper is a long-term ambition after putting pen to paper on a new deal at Crystal Palace.

The Portsmouth-born shot-stopper, who turned 20 last month, signed a contract extension on Wednesday, tying him to the Selhurst Park outfit for at least another season.

Webber spent his schoolboy days in Newtownards after moving here with his mother Emma and brother Samuel, coming through the ranks at Glentoran under academy coach David Lowry before signing apprenticeship forms with the London club in 2016.
