Newcastle United Reserves will be in action tonight, in an attractive Reserve game against Liverpool at St. James’ Park in a 7 PM kick off.
Tamas Kadar - 17 year old Hungarian will start at center-back tonight
This may be a good chance to see some of our new youngsters in action and Liverpool will also have some great youngsters on display having won the FA Youth Cup the last two seasons running. Liverpool Reserves are not surprisingly, top of the FA Premier Reserve League North.
Three of our top new teenagers, Ben Tozer, Tamas Kadar and Wesley Baheng will be in action tonight and no doubt manager Kevin Keegan will join Reserve team coach Adam Sadler at the game, to take a look at his up and coming stars.
Reserve Team Captain David Edgar – on verge of first team breakthrough
20 year old Fraser Foster will be in goal, and the team will again be captained by 20 year-old Canadian David Edgar. David has made it known he wants some first team starts before the end of the season, or else he’d like to go out on loan to get some games. He’s been in terrific form lately and has excellent leadership abilities, something that is sadly missing in the first team at the moment.
Here’s a good interview with the Liverpool Reserve Team Manager Gary Ablett, on tonight’s mouth watering game (their description of the game) with Newcastle United.
If you can spare the time tonight, you may consider going along to watch the boys. Last Monday’s attendance against Manchester City Reserves was a rather disappointing 740 and we feel there could well be more fans there tonight as the realization grows that some of our new youngsters can well turn out to be top players.
The Official Newcastle site is reporting that season ticket holders and official NUFC members gain FREE entry to this game. For others, admission at the East Stand is Â£3 (adults) and Â£1.50 (concessions).
Reserve team coach Adam Sadler has named the following side for the game:
Newcastle United Reserves:
Fraser Forster, Callum Morris, Tamas Kadar, Mark Doninger, David Edgar, Ben Tozer, Jonny Godsmark, James Troisi, Ryan Donaldson, Wesley Ngo Baheng, James Marwood.
Subs: Darren Lough, Olle Soderberg, Patrick McLaughlin, James Taylor, Michael McCrudden.
We don’t have the Liverpool line-up yet.
