Richard Money has seemingly done an excellent job at Newcastle, in very difficult circumstances, in getting the Under-18 side and the Reserves playing very well this season.
Richard Money – great job with youngsters since joining Newcastle United
The former Walsall manager says he has been impressed with the promise shown by the many top youngsters at Newcastle.
Money told nufcTV today.
“We’ve got a lot of good young players at this club,” “There’s a whole group of them have had a major influence in the way that the Under-18s have performed and it’s no surprise to see them top of the league.”
“A lot of them are first-year players and I’ve been very pleased with their progress.” “The likes of Brad Inman, Conor Newton, Sammy Ameobi and James Tavernier have come in with the Reserves and done well and it’s encouraging.”
“The challenge now is for them to keep that up and for others to do the same.”
Of course our Newcastle under-18 side are at the very top of the Academy Table with Nile Ranger proving to be a real star in the making, having already scored 12 goals for Newcastle teams this season.

Richard talked about the 17 year-old Ranger:
“Nile has been excellent since joining us,” “He’s played at a real high intensity for both the Under-18s and Reserves.”
“He could have a big future in the game and we hope to see that at Newcastle.”
We hope to go all the way in this year’s FA Youth Cup and win the thing for the first time since 1985, when we hammered Watford 4-1, and a certain Paul Gascoigne was in the team.
