Newcastle Youngster Doing Well Out On Loan

Paul Dummett turned 21 last month and is currently out on loan at Scottish Premier Side St. Mirren, who also happen to play in black and white stripes, and Paul seems to do be doing very well for the Scottish club, from all reports.

Paul Dummett – doing well at St. Mirren

Newcastle-born Paul joined St. Mirren on the last day of the transfer window in August, and is on loan there until next January, and he has so far started 5 times for the side, who are now 7th top of the league with 12 points from their nine league games.

And former Newcastle coach Tommy Craig, who also played for Newcastle from 1974 through 1977, is now part of the staff at St. Mirren – a club that was founded way back in 1877 and is located in Paisley, Renfrewshire, just west of Glasgow.

Tommy Craig says Dummett is doing very well in Scotland:

“Dummy’s making steady progress and we’re delighted. This is a great experience for him.”

Hopefully, Paul will follow the path of James Tavernier over the last 18 months, when the former Leeds United youngster played over 50 times out on loan, and his game has come on big time, and he is now fighting for a first team place on Tyneside.

Dummett, who is a Welsh U21 International, had a spell at Gateshead where he played 10 times for the Tyneside club, located south of the River Tyne, and Paul may even stay the full season on loan  north of the border.
