Local Teenager Coming Into Contention At Newcastle

We had noticed this morning that Adam Campbell was left out of Newcastle United’s squad for an Italian youth tournament – and that could be a clue that Adam will make the squad for the Europa League games coming up against Metalica Kharkiv on the next two Thursdays.

Adam Campbell – could see some playing time on Thursday

Adam turned 18 on New Years Day and every time Alan Pardew talks about this lad, he says he’s been impressive in training – so why not give the North Shields born youngster a chance against Metallica?

We’ve also heard that Adam works his socks off in training, and that he is already a first rate professional dedicated to becoming a Newcastle first teamer.

And Adam’s already played in the Europa League once this season, when he made his debut in the game against Atromitos in August.

Campbell is highly-rated by Newcastle manager Alan Pardew, and he could be one of the Newcastle youngsters that comes through big time over the next year – we certainly hope so – and we need some youngsters coming through into the first team.

And if he does –  his pace and movement will offer Newcastle something different up front, and with the impressive Yoan Gouffran, we could have two pacy players up front for Newcastle next season.

The 5’7″ tall youngster, who wears the number 49 shirt,  has made just one senior appearance for Newcastle so far, but he could add to that in the next two games.

Comments welcome.

We ran this heart wrenching story yesterday on Eve Miller – and it’s  had a huge impact on me – so please help the 10 year-old if you possibly can – many thanks.
