Andy Carroll has six goals from his last five games for our reserves and he’ll be action at Morecambe tonight to face Blackburn Rovers.
Andy Carroll – will lead the line tonight for the second team
The team has been names by Adam Sadler but Tamas Kadar is away on international duty with the Hungary under-19s team and is not available. But Ole Soderberg, Ben Tozer and Wesley Ngo Baheng all start tonight.
Newcastle will start the following side tonight for the 7pm kick-off:
Olle Soderberg, James Marwood, Darren Lough, Mark Doninger, Ben Tozer, Callum Morris, Jonny Godsmark, David Edgar, Andy Carroll, Wesley Ngo Baheng, Kazenga LuaLua
Subs: Ryan Donaldson, Mark Cook, Fabio Zamblera, Shane Ferguson, Matthew Grieve
David Edgar is the old man in the squad and is also our captain. He doesn’t turn 21 until May.
Of course our outstanding young 19 year old goalkeeper Fraser Forster will not play because he is currently acting as back up to Steve Harper while Shay Given is out injured.
One last important point, we’ve been told by some of our Swedish readers the correct way to spell Soderberg’s first name is Olle. Ole is apparently the Norwegian form of the name. Just thought you may like to know that important piece of information and that the club seem to be spelling his name incorrectly.
Boy – things you can learn on this site! Â 😀
