Newcastle United Reserves will be in action tonight at St. James’ Park against Wigan Athletic.
Nile Ranger – likely starter tonight against Wigan
The Newcastle Reserves side in the last 18 months has been made up of some of our most promising youngsters, and the average age of the side is often around just 19.
With the Youth Policy now being a vital cog in the Newcastle wheel, the fans will have a good chance to see some of our top youngsters in action tonight.
Promising players such as Ryan Donaldson, Nile Ranger. Kazenga LuaLua and Brad Inman, and our two top young goalkeepers Krul and Forster, have all been given senior call-ups this season.
Richard Money’s second eleven are returning to action after a layoff of almost two weeks following their 3-0 defeat against a strong Man City side.
And of course our Under-18 side was eliminated by holders Man City at Eastlands last week, in the FA Youth Cup, by a 4-2 scoreline.
But we hope the lads can get back to their winning ways tonight against Wigan, and we’ll have a report of the game.
The KO time tonight is 7:00 pm.
