Newcastle Promote Young Defender To Train With First Team


Steve Bruce earlier confirmed that Jamaal Lascelles, Ciaran Clark, and Paul Dummett will be out for Wednesday’s match against Leicester City.

The head coach has drafted young Kelland Watts in to train with the first-team today. Kelland had been on loan at Stevenage but has been recalled recently.

Newcastle released images from today’s training session which can be seen here. Kelland Watts is featured in several of the images.

In the introduction to the pictures, the club confirm that the 19-year-old has returned from Stevenage and is training with the first team.

Watts had a successful loan spell with the League Two club until he injured himself in the First Round of the FA Cup against Peterborough in early November. He was forced to leave the match early after a rash challenge for which he was cautioned.

Kelland Watts– back at Newcastle

Watts made a total of 19 appearances while on loan playing in four different positions – center-back, midfield, right-back, and left-wing.

Due to his versatility, we could see Kelland in the match-day squad on Wednesday as he would be able to cover a number of positions. In last season’s finale, Watts was on the bench for the 4-0 win at Fulham along with another young defender, Lewis Cass.

The 20-year-old local lad signed a long-term deal with Newcastle on November 7th. He’s also been capped twice for England at the U19 level.

    Good to see, yes I know we have injuries but if the kid is there on merit and hard work he deserves the experience and hopefully some playing time.

    Thanks for the link to the Accies match with the Gers.

    Did you notice the goal (posts and Bar ) at the Sainsbury end ? It’s lost in the white background .

    It’s not cricket.

    You really will have to stop calling Tsunki a Prick in your posts to him

    You pulled him up for the O’Geordie reference saying something on the lines of “less of the Irish jibes”
    I think constantly calling him Tarquin the Prick is a bit below the belt .

    Apologise .

    My next post to you is a friendly one .

    Munster – agree that it’s a bit sad and infantile to constantly call others names – I guess that goes for everyone on here – if you’ve got nowt worthwhile to debate a point you don’t agree with then just ignore it and say nowt – calling somebody a prick, furkwit etc etc is only showing what a limited vocabulary one has – any more if this nonsense and I’ll get Rees Mogg to clamp you in irons and thrash you with a cat o nine tails to within an inch if your life

    I see things down your way like this ….

    You have not put thousands of £ pounds, and time, travel, effort and a large percentage of earnings over many many years into following Newcastle United as a lot of lifetime supporters on here have, so in effect you don’t feel the way we do at the shell of a club we have become..

    We know the difference and feel it ..you cannot as you have invested nothing into our club yet you knock down we real supporters opinions at every turn here.

    You are not part of it, have invested nothing other than a car journey to watch the team train and report on Rafa having little hands .

    We on the other hand have lived it and are many thousands of pounds out of pocket only to end up with an owner with no ambition and selling off our assets while using Newcastle United to drive a sports shop .

    We are a shell of a club now and we know the difference, feel the difference . You can’t feel it, from any perspective.

    Some joker said he didn’t think munster put rafa down on a daily basis and that he hadn’t seen any proof of it. Funny that, coming from someone who oddly enough also belittles rafa at every turn.

    In the real world we should be eternally grateful for rafa and be suitably insulted that we now have bruce.

    Jail of course I’m feeling vindicated. What I have said consistently is that due to the noise created on here, by you and others, that discussions of anything negative of Rafa were all but outlawed. A ludicrous situation that changed noticeably in recent months, with lots of people chipping in with fair points which, whilst not attacking the man (and rightly so) , gave a slightly different assessment.

    You do post a lot of decent reading but your missing something and it’s probably not your fault as your missing the feeling that a supporter who has invested thousands of pounds over the years feels when hes/shes , been taken for a fool by a filthy rich owner ..not forgetting how his minimum wage employees have suffered at Shirebrook with young women giving birth in toilets for fear of having a day off and loosing (JIB) their jobs .

    We over here know we have had Wor pants pulled down by Ashley and he is taking the piss to put it bluntly .

    When other clubs are extending their grounds Ashley sells the land that could have enabled us to extend StJames is one horrendous move by him and him pocketing £9 million ..and rising.

    He’s scum Munster

    Take our feelings into account next time you post ..we have lived it ..you have not .

    Not your fault I know but try understand .. I’m probably £40k down over the years following Newcastle .

    Feel like Iv been robbed now and Ashley has cheapened my support.

    Personality clash I think
    I knew Mitro’s days were numbered when he picked
    up Rafa and gave him a bearhug after scoring
    Spaniards are very hung up on personal dignity

    Moanster – you lasted about 4 hours before you had to mention Rafa yet again. (and again and again and again).

    Give it a rest man – you are transforming into a right old granny.

    Now that all’s said and done we can’t really say Rafa performed better than pardew

    Yes we liked him more because he wasn’t a London scumbag but in terms of points on the board over money spent, they performed equally

    Spurs were not on the beach

    Spurs had to win to move above Arch North London rivals and enemies Arsenal !

    Rafas team Hammered them when they really needed to win .
