The 17-year-old Italian was signed in January for Newcastle United from Serie A side Atalanta.
Fabio Zamblera – delighted to have made his debut at the club
However, he only just made his debut last night for the Reserves when the Italian Under-18 International came on as a late substitute in the reserves 3-0 win over Everton.
As it turns out Fabio had a chance of a goal after 85 minutes but his flick on was saved by Everton goalkeeper Iain Turner.
After the game Fabio seemed very pleased to have made his debut and spoke to the Official Newcastle United Web site:
“It was great to make my debut at St.James’ Park and hopefully I will continue to play for the reserves this season.â€
“I’m enjoying life in Newcastle and have settled in really well.”
Reserve team manager Adam Sadler added:
“Fabio had an impact when he came on and caused a few problems and probably should’ve scored.â€“But he’s been fine so far and has settled right into it.â€
“In fact, he’s already telling me that he’s an adopted Geordie so I think he’s definitely enjoying himself!”
The 6’3″ striker is well thought of at the club, and along with Andrew Carroll, who is the same height, they must make a threatening presence when they team up together.
Both these boys could be good players for us in the future with Andrew on the verge of a first team start. In fact the Reserves have several of our new youngsters in their team, and they seem to be worth a look at, if only to check on our up and coming youngsters.
That’s where our future lies.
