Another Geordie Returns – Newcastle Add Former Defender As U23 Assistant Coach



Newcastle United have appointed former defender and local lad Peter Ramage as the new U23 assistant coach.

This is a fantastic opportunity for Ramage as he returns to Newcastle United 12 years after he left as a player.

Here is what the 36-year-old had to say about coming back to his hometown club as a coach:

“I’m really excited and grateful to be given the opportunity by the football club to come home and work at the Academy with the Under-23s.

“I’m looking forward to working and learning from some incredible coaches and working with a talented group of players.

“My goal is to help give them the foundations to move into the first team and hopefully live the dream that I did in walking out at St. James’ Park in front of 52,000 Geordies.”

Ramage will assist recently appointed U23 manager Chris Hogg, who was named in February filling the role left open after Neil Redfearn resigned early in the season.

Ramage was born in Whitley Bay and rose through the Newcastle Academy. He made his debut in March of 2005 in a Europa League (then the UEFA Cup) round of 16 match against Olympiacos.

The center half went on to make 69 appearances for Newcastle before being released and joining QPR in 2008.

Ramage retired from football as a member of the United Soccer League’s Phoenix Rising in 2017. He returned to Phoenix as their assistant coach in the summer of 2018 and has now returned to Tyneside.

We wish Peter all the best in his new role and are delighted that another local lad has returned home.

    Welcome back Peter, I’m a little surprised we haven’t had Aaron Hughes come back in a coaching role.

    Obviously vital to get a new u23s assistant coach in when we’re allegedly on the brink of a takeover.

    “Business as usual”.

    I thought Aaron Hughes was coaching at Fulham? I might have imagined this though.

    I know I said I’d leave the jokes but ……

    Sometimes you drop the base and trip on acid.

    Hope that one’s ok 😉

    I took my 8-year old girl to the office with me on, “Take Your Kid to Work Day.” As we were walking around the office, she starting crying and getting very cranky, so I asked what was wrong with her…
    As my coworkers gathered round, she sobbed loudly, “Daddy, where are all the clowns that you said that you worked with?!”

    Kev

    The thing is I don’t know who you are mate and half the stuff was said in jest. I have no idea who you are.

    Why couldn’t you of been big enough and said I was right you were wrong? If you did that and I know it won’t mean much but I’d of changed my stance a bit. For me when people own there sh$t I just have respect for them instantly and I would of thought I might of been wrong.

    Like I say my respect means Naff all to you, just saying how I feel.

    From G’s link

    “Steve Bruce (Newcastle)
    As soon as the boffins have sorted the rona, they’ll turn their attentions directly to puzzling out the inexplicable numbers behind Newcastle somehow finishing safe as houses in mid-table.”

    I have an equation for you, boffins:

    (Dubs + Lascelles + ASM) ÷ Bruce = 13th

    The thing is, all those accusations take up page after page of the blog. Countless people have commented on how this is ruining things. You tell everyone else to ignore me and you call me a WUM, then you do all this clearly just to wind me up.

    Now let’s try again to stay out of one another’s way shall we?

    The takeover is definitely happening. Masters needs to get it done; it’s a feather in his cap and anyway it’s too big a deal to block!

    Be lucky deal going through before the start of the season due to the piracy. Due to lost funds through the piracy which in turn trickles down to the Premiership and to the clubs – so clubs are kicking up.

    I think it includes all the managers that were sacked along the way, too. Must have been 9 changes in the PL this season. Watford managed a fair few on thier own to be fair. Shame we weren’t one of them.

    Kev you really are something else.

    Why is it always about you? What I said was fair and you still couldn’t be the bigger man and say it all you did was play victim again.

    Believe it or not if the tables where reversed I’d own it.

    West Ham have stepped up their pursuit of Eberechi Eze, with David Moyes determined to win the race to sign the Queens Park Rangers forward.

    QPR are holding out for as much as £20m for Eze, who is also attracting interest from Aston Villa, Palace, #NUFC & #WBA. [Guardian]

    Looks like we could miss out on that one GP

    Hippo was a great motivational speaker. Hippo taught that you must never give up. Hippo didn’t follow his own advice.
