Tamas Kadar Is Proof That Newcastle Youth Policy Is Paying Off

Tamas Kadar picked up a minor knock in the Newcastle Reserve team game on Tuesday night, so is still a slight doubt for the game on Sunday afternoon at QPR.

Tamas Kadar – a slight doubt for Sunday

But the fact the game is on Sunday afternoon and not tomorrow should help the 20 year-old be ready to face QPR, should Chris Hughton give him his 10th start, and 17th appearance of the season.

And every game Kadar has appeared in Newcastle have never lost – so he hopes to keep that run going on Sunday.

Tamas talked to the Evening Chronicle today:

“To be unbeaten is a great feeling for me.” “I’m pleased – I wanted to play for the first team this year and I’ve achieved that.”

“This is the first in the team for me in Newcastle.” “I wanted to get many, many games this season, and I have played 16 games and 13 in the league.”

“It was unbelievable – I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed it.”

Kadar did have a serious broken leg he picked up in the Reserves game against Sunderland about 14 months ago, but he has recovered very well from that setback.

He will have a good 17 appearances for Newcastle this season, should he see some action on Sunday afternoon.

We rate Tamas very highly and have to think he could have almost double those appearances next season, if he progresses as well as we expect him to.

And he’s a good indication, along with Andy Carroll, Nile Ranger, Tim Krul and Haris Vuckic that the Newcastle Youth Policy,  put in place again just over two years ago, is now starting to pay dividends.

We also expect Tamas to pick up his first Hungarian senior cap very shortly, to add to the 3 Hungary U-21 appearances, and he will be hoping he can become a Newcastle regular by this time next year.

We hope so too.
