Remie Streete Looking The Part At Newcastle


Young Remie Streete has been handed a three-and-a-half-year deal by his local club Newcastle United.

He looks like a young Cassius Clay!


Streete is just one of a number of promising youngsters coming through the Newcastle Academy on Tyneside, and the center-back is very well regarded at the club.

Remie won the very first Jack Hixon award at Sport Newcastle’s annual dinner last March, an award in memory of the scout who took the great Alan Shearer to Southampton, and remained a mentor to Alan throughout his career.

Remie turns 17 in November, and has just completed an excellent season on Tyneside, where he made his break-through to the Newcastle Reserve side.

And for a player who is still only 16, he did very well indeed, and Alan Pardew was duly impressed when he saw him play against the Arsenal Reserves at St. James’ Park, and  he looked just terrific – Remie that is. :D.

The 6’tall defender was born in South Shields, and came into the Reserves side towards the end of the season as our first-teamers were dropping like nine pins in training, and many Reserve team players couldn’t be risked in the second team, in  case they also picked up injuries.

Streete will be hoping to fully establish himself in the Reserve side under Peter Beardsley next season, no doubt.

Remie’s father Floyd played for Wolverhampton Wanderers in his prime – and Jamaica, his father’s country of birth, are said interested in the youngster for International duty.

But this lad could be good enough to play in the England Youth sides, and should probably bide his time.

When Remie won the Jack Hixon award, presented by Newcastle legend Alan Shearer last March, this is what he dad to say:

“I just want to try and get a regular place in the Reserve team, and hopefully next season I can be playing every game at reserve- team level.”

“I played in a training game at St James’ Park once about three years ago, but my first game was against Grimsby in the FA Youth Cup a couple of months ago, and we won that.”

“It was good to play at St James’ again, and that’s something that I will be aiming to do more of in the future.” “There have been quite a few injuries this season.” “The two centre-backs are out, so I’ve got my chance.”

“It was only my second game, and I thought I did well, but I just need to keep working hard.” “It was a good game.” “We were 1-0 up, and obviously disappointed to give the lead away.” “We managed to get it back in the last couple of minutes.”

“We keep getting told to keep going, so that’s just what we did. It was good.” “I made my debut at Bolton, but to play against a team like Arsenal was good.”

“I learned a lot of things from it, and hopefully I’ll take them into future games.”

Remie reminds us a lot about when Steven Taylor was a  17 year-old and making his way through the Newcastle Academy, and of course Steven went on to captain the England U21 side and came back into the first team in rather sensational style in the last 3 games of  last season,  scoring a goal in each of those games.

We think Remie has the same potential as Steven had, and don’t be surprised if this lad is making his debut in the Newcastle first team within a couple of years.

We’ll continue to watch this local lad as he makes progress through the ranks at Newcastle.

Comments welcome.

    Apparently Marvin Martin has told France Football he wants to leave Sochaux…

    Now that would be a good addition to our team!

    That would be good business in my eyes, we need quality, but at the same time we need squad numbers. A deal like that would give us both, and leave money in the bank for strikers.
