It’s that time of year again at Newcastle when decisions have to be made on some of the young players at Newcastle, and whether they have done enough to earn new contracts at the club, or whether they will be allowed to move on.
Tom Heardman – scored equalizer on Monday night
Two of the players whose deals run out in June are strikers Tom Heardman and Jonathyn Quinn, and they are the third year scholars who will be wondering if they now have a future at Newcastle.
This is what Peter Beardsley said in the Shields Gazette today:
“Decisions have to be made,” “John Carver will be involved in that along with Steve Stone, Dave Watson, Lee Charnley and Graham Carr.” “We’re all involved and we all have an opinion.”
“It’s an awkward time of year, as some are guaranteed and already have pro contracts. It’s something that happens every year at this time.” “Some will have done themselves a favour against Stoke.”
Notice that the people making the decisions include three Geordies – John Carver, Steve Stone and Graham Carr, so maybe that’s why it looks like the club are giving John Carver every chance to prove he can do the job as head coach.
Tom Heardman scored the equalizer for the Newcastle’s U-21s in Monday night’s 1-1 draw against Stoke City at St James’s Park, so maybe he’s one of the players who did himself a favor?
We should know soon enough who made the cut as it were, but of course the majority of those up for new deals don’t get them, and they move on to hopefully have good careers at other clubs.
