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.

    The Welsh invented the condom by using sheep guts
    The English improved their idea by taking them out of the sheep.

    A woman walks into a drugstore and asks the pharmacist if he sells size extra large condoms.

    He replies, “Yes we do. Would you like to buy some?”

    She responds, “No sir, but do you mind if I wait around here until someone does?”

    A Grandpa walks into a grandson’s apartment and sees a condom on the table. “What’s this!?” demands the grandfather. “It’s a condom” replies the grandson sheepishly. “What do you use it for?” asks Gramps.

    The guy is surprised that his grandpa really doesn’t know what a condom is, and lies, “I use it to keep my cigarettes dry when I smoke in the rain.”

    To his surprise his grandpa says “That’s a great idea,” and goes off to the drug store. He asks the pharmacist for a condom.

    “What size would you like” asks the pharmacist.

    “Oh, big enough to fit a camel”

    Three nuns were in the church the other day and the 1st nun says, “I was going through the Father’s office and do you know what I found? A bunch of pornographic magazines!”

    “What did you do?” the other nuns asked.

    “Well, of course I threw them in the trash.”

    The second nun said, “Well, I can top that. I was in Father’s room putting away the laundry and I found a bunch of condoms!”

    “Oh my!” gasped the other nuns.

    “What did you do?” they asked.

    “I poked holes in all of them!” she replied.

    The third nun fainted

    A man walks into a pharmacy and asks for a pack of condoms. As soon as he has paid for them, he starts laughing and walks out.

    The next day, the same performance, with the man walking out laughing fit to bust. The chemist thinks this odd and asks his assistant, that if the man returns, to follow him. Sure enough, he comes into the store the next day, repeating his actions once more. The assistant duly follows. Half an hour later, he returns.

    “So did you follow him?” ask the chemist.

    “I did”, replied the assistant.

    “And…where did he go?”

    “Over to your house…”

    Anglo already have mate could be, but he would never admit to it.

    Say it was and he came out and owned it because like you say he is a clear toon fan as it says. If it was true and it was all for research as his tweets say and he owned it I’d have respect for that.
