Keegan To Decide Soon On Youngsters Solli and Kominiak

The Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan will need to decide on two youngsters on trial at Newcastle, Lukasz Kominiak and Aleksander Solli, who have only just arrived at the club this week.

The two players played for the full 78 minutes in last night’s Reserve team game at Kingston Park, with Newcastle Blue Star before it was abandoned with no goals having been scored.

Apparently both players looked good last night, so it’s going to be a decision Keegan will need to make.

Lukasz Kominiak is a Polish youth international defender who plays in his home country for Wisla Krakow. The boy is just 18 years old and has already had a trial with Liverpool, and was at Newcastle at the end of last season.

Aleksander Solli is an 18 year-old Norwegian youth international who arrived on Tyneside this week, and currently plays in the Norwegian second division for Løv-Ham.

Solli played really well in the center of Newcaste’s defense last night. and Kominiak, played at left-back.

It’s reported that both players will now spend another two days training on Tyneside, after the manager watched them from the stands last night, and then Kevin will make the decision.

Reserve Team manager Adam Sadler said after the game:

“The last have only been in the country a matter of hours, and they performed well.”

“It’s difficult for anybody at any level going to a club and having to get straight into it in tough conditions. I thought they coped really well, and I was pleased with them.”

“This was a perfect opportunity for them, because we had a game arranged to get them exposed a bit to what it’s like playing English football against a decent senior side. There was plenty to test them.”

“We’ve got them for a couple more days, and we’ll take it from there.”

Kevin was accompanied by Terry McDermott and Chris Hughton last night to watch the boys, and if we hazard a guess we’d think Kevin would sign both players, if they have adjusted as well as it appears.

There’s very little risk with players this young, and hopefully Newcastle will hit the jackpot with some of them.

It’s just very hard at their age to know which ones actually will make it big time.

Comments welcome.
