Newcastle United Reserves will field a strong side tonight, when they host Manchester City at St. James’ Park, with a kick-off time of 7:00pm.
Nile Ranger - will play tonight
And it looks like Alan Shearer and Iain Dowie will take a look at some of Newcastle’s fringe first team players tonight, as the Reserves will include Alan Smith, Danny Guthrie, Andy Carroll, Xisco and David Edgar.
Youngsters Tim Krul and Nile Ranger are also expected to feature in the game tonight.
The Newcastle club is is indicating that season ticket holders and official NUFC members gain free access to Reserve home league games.
Otherwise, prices are £3 and £1.50 (concessions), and it would not surprise us to see a more than a decent crowd there tonight as Alan and Iain check out some of their first teamers.
It’s also a first chance for Alan to check up on some of our up and coming young starlets like 17 year old England Under-19 striker Nile Ranger, and Tim Krul, Holland’s Under-21 goalkeeper.
Can you imagine how Nile Ranger feels to have one of England’s greatest ever strikers as his new manager at Newcastle? Maybe this is just a dream for him.
We bet he’s even happier still to have moved to Newcastle last summer – what a first season this boy has had on Tyneside.
