One of Newcastle United’s top young guns, 17 year-old midfielder Brad Inman, made his debut today for the Scotland Under-19 side.
17 year-old Australian-born Inman played for Scotland U-19 side today
The Scots were beaten 3-2 by France in Clairefontaine, after taking a two goal lead, through Burnley youngster Alex McDonald .
Brad Inman joined Newcastle last year, and made his debut for Newcastle U-18s against Liverpool in February of last year, and he had a tremendous game in central midfield in that game, as the bairns held Liverpool 0-0, and Brad was then just 16 years old.
Brad will be another player to watch for the future at Newcastle, and at just 17 years of age, he looks like an excellent player in the making
Burnley midfielder Alex McDonald fired the Scots into a two-goal lead, before the French lads fought back well to claim a late victory with Rennes youngster Yacine Brahimi hitting home the winning goal from the penalty spot.
Inman, a ball-playing midfielder, was making his first appearance for Scotland after accepting the Scottish call-up earlier this month, and the Australian National side had better watch out, if they want to claim this lad for the Socceroos.
Brad will also need to decide who he wants to play for shortly, because while he was born in Adelaide, South Australia, he is also eligible to play for Scotland, because his mother was born there.
Brad has been outstanding for the Newcastle U-18 side this season, and got his first senior call-up for Newcastle earlier this month, when Academy Director Richard Money at that time said:
“I think he deserved the first-team call-up if I’m honest,” “He’s had a particularly good first season.”
“A number of our first years have done the same but he’s probably shone above the rest.”
“It’s a big boost for everyone involved in the youth program when you get a 17-year-old boy on the bench, it’s a bit special.”
“We like him a lot,” “He’s a good passer, comfortable on the ball and has got a great attitude.”
“He’s still very young but we hope he could have a good future here at Newcastle.”
Yet another young gun to keep an eye on at Newcastle. 😀
