Steve Bruce Calls Up Several Local Lads To Train With First Team



A couple of weeks ago, Craig Hope with the Mail reported that three youngsters would be added to first-team training to add depth to the squad for the remainder of this season.

Hope named Tom Allan, Jack Young, and Elliot Anderson as the youngsters in line for the call-up.

Well, it turns out that Hope was partly right in his assertion as Newcastle have announced that five players have been drafted into first-team training.

Jack Young– promising young midfielder

However, goalkeeper Dan Langley has been named instead of Elliot Anderson. As previously reported, both Kelland Watts and Dan Barlaser have also joined the squad after successful loan spells.

The addition of the 19-year-old Langley could be due to Rob Elliot’s possible departure on June 30th when his contract runs out. We’ve yet to hear of a short-term extension to the end of the season for the 34-year-old.

Newcastle made the following statement in the announcement of the five players joining the squad:

While their involvement with Bruce’s group is largely with a view to them staking their claim for future campaigns, some of the youngsters could yet come into contention this season.

Of the five, only Dan Barlaser is ineligible to feature this season.

Kelland Watts, despite playing on loan at both Stevenage and Macclesfield, is eligible after the Premier League relaxed the rule for the number of teams a player can play for this season.

All five of the young Magpies are local lads, so this is an excellent move by Steve Bruce.

    To me it seems like sour grapes now mate from the Bein side who are trying every tact to destabilise the deal.
    Telling the PL to turn the deal down because there is another bidder waiting in the wings smells to me that they fear the takeover will go through.
    I for one mate am staying positive that our dreams will soon be fulfilled

    Tom Allan should see some game time he looks like he can step up has pace and directness would much rather see him come off the bench than Atsu

    You would have thought that there must be a point where the PL have to give a decision so everyone can move forward for all parties involved. Good old Mikey boy will want his pound of flesh soon so he can move on to his next pet project

    Jazzy that’s true I guess he might need the money a bit more now. At least it sounds like he can’t move the goalposts this time

    The fake crowd sounds awful. I really hate it, even if there is a guy choosing what is played according to play, it still just doesn’t sound natural, and because of that it really really just gives me a headache.
