15 Year-Old Remie Streete One For The Future

Newcastle United’s newest recruit to the Youth Academy is Remie Streete, who is a center-back born in South Shields.

And the youngster, who was the very first winner of the Jack Hixon award last week, presented by Geordie legend Alan Shearer,  seems to have the right attitude, as he has talked today that only hard work at the club’s Academy will allow him to be successful.

And success for the 15 year-old seems to be to follow in the footsteps of one of his Newcastle heroes, 24 year-old Steven Taylor.

Remie is currently at Boldon School, but he will be joining Newcastle United on a full-time basis in the summer, after being voted one of the most promising players of his age group by Newcastle United scouts.

Remie told the Evening Chronicle:

“Hopefully I can follow in Steven Taylor’s footsteps and play in the first team.”“I just have to keep working hard and keep improving as a player.”

“I would like to play like Rio Ferdinand, though I am not as good as him yet!”

“I have played at St James’ Park once in a training match, and I would love to play there again. It is my dream to play for the club.”

Streete’s father Floyd played for Cambridge United, Wolves, Derby and Reading during his career, and it would appear that Streete is the latest great young player to join the Newcastle club.

Of course it will it will be a few years before we’ll see this youngster emerge into the first team at Newcastle.

But from what we have heard about  this lad, he looks like a player who can make it big at Newcastle.

The South Shields youngster continued:

“It was great to get the Jack Hixon Award, and especially to be the first person to get it.”

“It is a great honor, and it means a lot to have Alan Shearer present it to me.”

Streete has already captained Newcastle’s  junior sides, and he will look to trying to get into the Newcastle U18 side as soon as possible.

Maybe when he does that, Newcastle will already be the FA Youth Cup holders!

And finally, is it just us, or does Remie look like a young Cassius Clay   (Mohammed Ali)?

    Shite – only defender on the bench is Enrique – no backup centre-backs!! If Hall doesnt perform, i expect Hughton to move Kadar to the centre with Enrique coming in on the left

    In the latter part of the game, I hope that Hughton allows Ranger a bit of playing time over Best!! Ranger has that extra ability to hold up play, stretch the Boro defence a bit and offer us something different

    Sorry Ed but Remi was born in Aylesbury, Bucks not South Shields. Like Taylor, I’m sure he’ll become an adopted Geordie though!
