16 year old Adam Armstrong stands only 5’8″ tall, but he is probably Newcastle’s brightest young prospect at Newcastle these days, and made tremendous progress last season.
Adam Armstrong – England U17 player
Adam has played for the England U16 and U17 teams and in the summer scored a goal for the England U17 side in the win in late August over Turkey in the FA International Tournament, and Adam was the outstanding English player in that game.
The local lad was called up for Newcastle’s first team squad for the Capital One Cup game at Morecambe a few backs back, midweek Capital One Cup tie at Morecambe, and the forward called it a ‘dream come true’ even though he remained on the bench.
At that time this is what Adam had to say:
“The lads have done really well. We kept the ball well first half, the second half was a bit messy but we’ve got the result. I’m really delighted to get on the score sheet, ” “I just have to keep those goals coming.”
Adam’s favorite player is Wayne Rooney and he has the same build as Wayne., so we hope he can turn out to be as good as Wayne Rooney is.
Armstrong is a hugely gifted player who plays as a number 10, and certainly he has already caught the eye of Newcastle manager Alan Pardew, who mentioned yesterday that Armstrong is one of the promising youngsters at the club.
Adam Armstrong – a star of the future
The former Walbottle Campus Technology College pupil made his U18 debut at Newcastle in the game against Tottenham a year ago, and came one big time last season.
Newcastle haven’t had too much success in bringing players through the Academy, but with Adam Campbell and Adam Armstrong, we seem to have two local lads who have terrific potential.
We hope both of them can come through at Newcastle – we need more English players and we need more local lads in the squad.
