Reserve team coach Adam Sadler takes his Newcastle United Reserve team to Wigan Athletic tonight.
David Edgar – 20 year old Canadian captains Reserves tonight
The Reserves have been unbeaten in their last four games and include a number of our up and coming young players, so itâ€™s always worth watching the youngsters to see how they are coming along.
Newcastle reserves are now looking for their first double of the season at Robin Park tonight (7pm KO), since they beat Wigan 3-1 at Kingston Park earlier in the season.
David Edgar will again captain the side and it turns out heâ€™s the only player in the side with previous first team experience, having appeared 5 times for the senior side and scored that great gaol against Manchester United last year.
Sadler has picked the following side for tonight’s 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, Ole Soderberg, Alex Francis, Mark Bertram, Michael McCrudden.
Some of our new acquisitions, Kadar, Tozer and Baheng are all in the side. We wonder when 17 year-old 6’3″ Italian striker Fabio Zamblera will be given a run out. Fabio hasn’t played for a Newcastle side yet, since he signed last month.
Newcastle Reserves next home game is next Monday, March 3, when Everton are the visitors. The game is again at St. James’ Park (kick-off 7pm) and is a good chance for supporters to see out young up and coming players in action.
This is one of the few good things at Newcastle this season, our growing group of top class teenagers.
