Newcastle-Born Youngster Continues To Have Success On Loan

Newcastle’s 21 year old local lad Paul Dummett could be playing at Hampden Park in January, after St. Mirren beat Aberdeen in the quarterfinals of the Scottish League Cup, following a 4-2 penalty shoot-out win at the Pittodrie Stadium last night.

Paul Dummett – doing very well on loan at St. Mirren
He likes playing in black and white stripes – obviously

The 21-year-old Newcastle-born defender played the full 120 minutes in his 9th appearance for St. Mirren, but he was not one of the penalty takers.

The Saints were ahead twice in this game and were leading 1-0 in added time, but would you believe it, Josh Magennis forced extra time with a late goal for Aberdeen.

It’s not clear if Paul will still be at St. Mirren on loan when the semi-finals are played on the weekend of the 26th January, since his loan spell is due to end in early January.

That’s a decision Alan Pardew will have to make – whether he lets Paul stay on loan at St. Mirren for the rest of the season.

Certainly if he cannot get many games on Tyneside in the second half of the season, it would seem sensible to let the lad play first team games north of the border.

Paul has done extremely well up north, and had two successive Man of the Match awards for the Scottish Premier League side recently.

Paul was on loan at Gateshead earlier this year and played 10 times for the Tyneside club, and he played once for the Welsh U21 side last year.

He has yet to play for Newcastle in a competitive game but impressed during the Magpies’ American tour last year.

    Last season if I’m not mistaken the game vs Norwich, we played with 4 full backs. We have nothing to lose if we played Streete, he would probably do a better job than fb converted to cb and we might see how good he really is.

    I think Glenn Roeder or Daglish gave youngsters more chances than AP. Remember Paul Huntington and David Edgar? they are some of the names I remember correctly.

    This is nufc news. Kind of.
    Demba ba is the sunderlands top/only goal scorer in October.
    They have actually only scored one goal in October and it was ba’s.

    So no matter how bad we might play, there’s always people worse off 🙂

    David Edgar scored the equalizing goal vs Manu. Huntington also scored but I forgot against who.
    Nzogbia at that time was also very young, James Milner as well.

    Sorry I’m being nostalgic

    There is a statistic for this, which i currently cannot find unfortunatly.
    But AP has bled more youngsters in 2 years, the the clubs history in the last 10.
    There are many youngsters coming to the fore now, not just 1-2.

    Realistically though how many of these youngsters will be world class.

    Watching the reserves for a few seasons I can say that the only one who perhaps be a full international for a quality nation in a few seasons is Adam Campbell.

    Vuckic might come good but other than that we have youngsters who will be PL quality but will never take us to the top end.

    Davy…I’ll believe it when I see it cause I have heard that song before.

    Of all those players I think everyone beside Fergy and Sammy needs to go out on loan at some point.

    And not just on loan to anyy club, but the right one with the right tactics and game level.
