Last night another one of Newcastle’s youngsters – Kyle Cameron – made his debut for the England U16 team, and they beat Wales 1-0 in the Sky Sports Victory Shield encounter at Port Talbot.

England had to put up with a barrage of pressure early in the game, before the referee was forced to suspend the game during a torrential downpour in the first half.
Cameron came on as a second half substitute and played all of the second half, and England went on to win the game 1-0 with Chelsea teenager Dominic Solanke’s getting the only goal of the goal.
Cameron looked as steady as a rock at center-back for the England side in the second half, and the impressive Newcastle youngster even went close to scoring from a corner before England finally went ahead.
Cameron is now a regular in Newcastle’s U18 side, and he is certainly yet another one for the future at Newcastle.
The win was England’s second in the Victory Shield competition, following their 5-0 hammering of Northern Ireland, and in that game two other Newcastle players – goalkeeper Freddie Woodman and Adam Armstrong – both played.
In the second half Wales brought on Ellis Bellamy, who is the son of former Newcastle striker Craig Bellamy, who was watching from the stands and is now playing at Cardiff City, who are top of the Championship at the moment.
Newcastle have some top young players coming through the ranks among the 15 and 16 year olds – Kyle Cameron is one of them – remember the name.
