Have Newcastle Uncovered Another Star Player?


Jak Alnwick made his Newcastle debut on Saturday against Chelsea, when he came on for the injured Rob Elliot at the start of the second half.

Jak Alnwick in action on Saturday

Jak had a number of interviews after the game on Saturday, and this is some of what he said:

“I’m a quite a confident person and though there were a few butterflies when I came on, the lads calmed me down,”

“If I get a run in the side, I’ll be quite relaxed about it.” “There are a lot of big games coming up but as the third choice keeper, this is what I am here to do.”

“I have to be ready at all times and if I play at Arsenal, I’ll go into it with the same confidence I had against Chelsea.”

Those are good words from the 21 year-old and certainly he seems to have a great temperament.

And Newcastle fans seem confident that Jak can get the job done for Newcastle.

We should hear on Monday how bad Rob Elliot’s thigh injury is – and how long he will be out.

And it wouldn’t be too surprising if Jak shows in the next few weeks shows that he’s good enough to play in the Newcastle first team.

Certainly other youngsters who have come into the first team this season have shown that – like Rolando Aarons, Mehdi Abeid, Sammy Ameobi, Ayoze Perez, Massadio Haidara and Paul Dummett  … and hopefully Jak Alnwick can be added to that list.

    Nice to see, from the votes going in on this one, that confidence is high in the new Kid. We’ll need to keep that going if he’s gonna go from good to great.

    canny – I don’t think it’s necessary tonight for me to actually name “ya shyte and scumbags”.
    Most posters will know who are “ya shyte and scumbags” and certainly “ya shyte and scumbags” will instinctively know they are being referred to.

    Krul to go in the summer replaced by Darlow coming in. Elliott to remain as back up. Alnwick out of contract and will go. Woodman then will be 3rd choice.

    How would you rate this Darlow lad. Sound like a bit of a Quaker. That big white collar should help blocking shots on target. Or was that too cryptic?

    Far too cryptic dear but apparently, he is highly rated. Read somewhere during the week that a former England keeper (cant remember his name) rates him as a future England numbet 1
