Jonny Godsmark, Newcastle’s 19 year-old attacking midfielder made a great start to 2009 last night when he made two goals and scored the other in the Reserves 3-0 win against Bolton Wanderers at Whitley Park.
Jonny Godsmark – made two and scored one last night for Reserves
And with Joe Kinnear urging the Newcastle youngsters today to take their chances when they come, no doubt Jonny will have impressed Kinnear last night with his all action display.
Johnny is very quick and of course was the Reserves’ star last night and Joe Kinnear and Chris Hughton are making it regularly to see the Reserve team games, so he will have enough chances to impress Joe and Chris.
Jonny said today:
“It’s always the hope,” “All you can do is impress in reserve matches with Joe and Chris watching the games.”
“That’s all you can do, and if you’re lucky enough to get a chance in the first team, then you’ve got to take it.”
“I was pretty pleased with my own performance, and it was good for the team to get a good win.”
“For the first I was lucky enough to get it past the left-back, and I’ve ran 20 yards down the pitch. Nile’s made a good run, and I’ve spotted him. He never usually misses them.”
“I skipped past the left-back again for the second, and put a nice ball to Ryan, and he made the goal. It was a very clever dummy, and Frank’s finished excellently.”
“For my goal I made a run and it was an excellent run by Nile. It was a great start to the second half, and it killed the game off.”
Joe could do a lot worse than give Kazenga LuaLua and Johnny a run out late in some of the first team games this season, when it’s appropriate, and see how they perform.
Godsmark was an almost ever present with the Reserves last season, and scored a respectable 9 goals to finish top scorer.
