Newcastle continue to send some of their younger players out on loan, and one popular destination is to go over the River Tyne to Gateshead FC.
Callum Roberts – 17 year-old promising Geordie
And there’s news today that 17 year-old winger Callum Roberts and 20 year old striker Adam Campbell have joined The Heed on a one month loan.
Roberts has come on a ton this season, and made his first team debut at Leicester City in the FA Cup 3rd round, and Callum looks like a very promising young player for Newcastle.
On the other hand young Adam Campbell’s career seems to have stalled on Tyneside, after he looked very good during the first half of the 2012-2013 season, so we hope Adam can do well and get a few goals for Gateshead in the next few weeks.
20 year-old Newcastle striker Adam Campbell
Adam made his debut for Newcastle against Atromitos in August 2012, and at only 17 years old he became the youngest player ever to play for Newcastle in Europe.
That game unfortunately was when Ryan Taylor suffered his first ACL knee injury, but Ryan is expected to be back in full training in a week or two.
In the past, Adam Campbell has had loan spells at Carlisle United (1 appearance 0 goals), St. Mirren (12-2), Fleetwood Town (4-0) and Hartlepool (2-0) , and he’s appeared five times for Newcastle but that was back in the 2012-2013 season.
Adam was born in North Shields and Callum Roberts is from South Shields so the Shields boys will be playing south of the river for a month.
We hope both lads do well and help Gateshead – so it’s a win-win situation.
