Newcastle Forced To Pay Compensation For Top Youngster


Newcastle yesterday were ordered by FIFA to pay compensation to an Irish junior club for one of their players, who is currently part of Newcastle’s Youth Academy.

Jamie Smith – 18 year-old Newcastle center-back

Jamie Smith is 18 and a cetner-back and has captained Ireland at the U15, U16 and U17 level, and could well be a top player in the making, and he joined the Newcastle Academy in February two years ago, and played for the Newcastle Reserve side last season.

Newcastle paid a fee to Dublin club Cherry Orchard for the player over two years ago, but his former club Newbridge Town have legally taken action to gain compensation through FIFA’s Player status committee, which is responsible for the following:

  • Monitor compliance with the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players and determine the status of Players for various FIFA competitions. Its powers of jurisdiction are governed by the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.
  • Also responsible for the work of the Dispute Resolution Chamber in accordance with the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players and the Rules Governing the Procedures of the Players’ Status Committee and the Dispute Resolution Chamber.

Smith joined Kildare-based Newbridge when he was just 12 years old and spent a couple of seasons there, and in their legal action Newbridge claimed £80K but the committee awarded them only £15K

Smith was born in Merseyside, and Jamie Carragher is his idol, and on the Newcastle web-site,  it states that his favorite Newcastle players is (was) Joey Barton.

It’s only fair to the smaller clubs in football that money is paid out to them, and of course last year Newcastle had to pay out  £75K to Mervue United and Salthill Devon for Stephen Folan, who was released by the club last weekend.

Stephen was one of about eight Development players who were released by Newcastle this summer, and didn’t make the grade, at least not at Newcastle.

And with Newcastle having a little bit of bother bringing in some of their top targets this summer, the club must keep improving and investing in the Youth Academy.

And hopefully by doing that Newcastle can keep a supply of top youngsters coming through the club, and into the first team, in the years ahead.

That’s the goal in any case.

    Off topic, f365’s gossip column says that Manyoo are going to try to sign both Ba and Tiote from us. No sources quoted, but no doubt it will be another lazy tabloid journo.

    Tbf ‘Shola Hater’ is one of the most pathetic names I have read on here and does nothing to show but show u up

    Any person who plays for the team u claim to support deserves at the very least a level of respect regardless of their percieved talent. I can’t stand Ranger but I haven’t altered my name to put the lad down and, although I’d love to lose him, when he’s in my colour I’ll cheer him…and that’s a player who has added very little to the cause compared to Shola

    Basically show a little respect and u will get taken more seriously

    Dannyo –
    It’s just a game being played by a juvenile mind.
    Pick an offensive username, re-spout the same old,
    re-post it a few times, just to try to cause an argument.

    Want to play their game by responding?

    Back to business anyway, part of me is glad we’re no giving in to Twente’s demands.

    I can’t claim to have seen De Jong play too much – and I’m fairly sure most on here haven’t either, no matter how much you all talk like he’s sliced bread – but £10m+ is a lot of money for one player for a club like us.

    I have complete faith in our scouting team and he must be a good fit if we’re willing to spend that much, but it’s a large outlay.

    So u’re capable of reason, i’m impressed. “Shola Hater” says NOTHING on a players ability.
    It’s a pathetic and a disgraceful name, and only encourages to bust ups and bad words coming your way.
    Incase u havent noticed, i’ve ignored u for a good while, but pulling stunts like that, i’d badgered u and reported u to Ed until u were gone.
    I’m going back on ignore concerning u now.

    My God these constant remarks about Shola is ruining the good mood on here; both good and bad.

    …can we just leave Shola alone for awhile and get back to basics? 🙂

    …maybe I could it off by adding, Shola is a very nice bloke (one of the nicest you will meet) and a model prof. For that we adore him. End of story! 🙂

    Have to agree with u there. Last i read, the final offer was £11 mill, or it could’ve been the first, lol.
    Either way, it’s quite a steep price for a 21 year old, however, i do feel a bit gutted that we’re not able to get him.
    But i dont want us to go overboard either, and i don’t think we would have.
    Hopefully we have someone else just as good, but at maybe a lower price waiting in the wings.

    Hoilett and Debuchy over the course of next week would make me a happy camper.

    I actually agree with you mate; and I cannot see us spending that amount on a forward unless he is the real deal.

    I have only seen de Jong on a few occasions and don’t think he has been Twente’s #9 for a whole season yet.

    I still think we’ll only sign three first team players; Debuchy, Hoilett and Good.

    Anyone else is a youngster; well maybe Good is a youngster as well 😉

    At the start of the window, I’d have been happy with a full back and a center back.

    Losing a few fringe players leaves us a looking little light, but there’s little point in investing so much money in our academy etc. if we’re not going to force the youngsters through – something the club hasn’t done in my lifetime.

    For all the talk, I don’t think our squad was actually that thin last year. It’s just that we had 6/7 players who were never used – largely due to ability.

    I’m pretty disappointed in Best, for coming out and complaining about Pardew not giving him any opportunities.

    That’s complete bull to be honest. Best played as much as anyone with his injury record could hope for.

    I went through player selection for next season and depending on who you count as a youngster we have a squad of 20 players. (21 with Simmo)

    If we add three new signing that makes it 23 and that should be enough if Newcastle wants to give the youngsters a chance as well.

    But we need to sign youngsters that are in contention for the first team or else there is no point.
