There is news that Newcastle have made a formal agreement with Scottish Premier League club St.Mirren, to allow some of our best youngsters to go north of the border to get first team experience.
Paul Dummett – on loan at St. Mirren
At the moment we have Paul Dummett on loan at St. Mirren through January, and he seems to be doing a fine job for the Scottish Premier League club, and of course Alan Pardew is always keen to see his young guns go out on loan to experience first team football at other clubs.
The agreement is said to be an affiliation between the clubs – and that’s according to news in the Scottish press, and it could be that Connor Newton will join Paul Dummett north of the border soon, on loan at the Scottish Premier League club.
St.Mirren manager Danny Lennon had this to say about the deal:
“We have an affiliation with the club Newcastle United now and it means we can go down and have a look at their squad and see who we like.” The chance to get our hands on some other youngsters from one of the best leagues in the world is great for St.Mirren.”
“It also gives Newcastle’s youngsters the chance to pick up some valuable experience and play first team football”.
Newcastle seem to have unofficial agreements with clubs like Carlisle United, where a number of our players have gone out on loan, and of course across the River Tyne with Gateshead – but the more clubs the better as far as we are concerned, because it gives our youngsters a chance to hone their skills with first team football.
