We will not only be linked with many senior players from now until the transfer window closes on August 31st but also lots of younger stars.
Gary Madine – 12 goals this season for Carlisle Youth team
So itâ€™s not too surprising that we are being linked today with teenager Gary Madine of Carlisle United and he may well be the next young player snapped up by the club in their efforts to bring in the best young players around the world.
The tall 17-year-old has been one of the stars in the Carlisle Youth teamâ€™s success in the FA Youth Cup when they recently knocked out giants Manchester United. They beat the Red Devils youth team 2-1 on January 16th in the 4th round of the FA Youth Cup with a penalty goal coming from young Gary.
Gary has just signed just signed a professional contract and like our own Andy Carroll, hails from Gateshead.Â Madine has already scored 12 goals this year and has made the substitutes’ bench for the first team.
Donâ€™t be surprised if this deal has already been tied up by our new Executive Recruitment team, if indeed Gary looks the part. We expect around 5 new youngsters again to be brought in during the summer transfer window.
Then we should have a really strong youth side for an attempt at the FA Youth Cup next season, which we haven’t won since 1984 when a certain Paul Gascoigne was in the side.
