Goalkeeping Coach Confirms Which Youngsters Will Be With The First Team For Today’s Friendly



Unfortunately, Newcastle’s plans for today’s two friendlies have been affected by Karl Darlow’s positive Covid test. Newcastle were already without Martin Dubravka, who has a broken metatarsal.

For today’s matches as well as Friday’s at Doncaster, Steve Bruce will be without Darlow as well as Freddie Woodman and Mark Gillespie, who will all be self-isolating for the next ten days. This is hardly an ideal situation at the start of an important pre-season for this club.

The lads and staff will soldier on and hopefully, Darlow’s symptoms aren’t too severe and he recovers quickly. Bruce will have to rely on some youngsters to man the net for the next week and a half.

Newcastle have revamped the plans for today’s friendlies at York City and Harrogate Town. Rather than splitting the squad between the two matches, the senior side will face York City while the U23s will take on Harrogate Town.

Newcastle’s goalkeeping coach Simon Smith has taken to Twitter and revealed which goalkeepers will be with the senior squad at York this afternoon.

As expected, Dan Langley will be in goal at York City. He’s been with the first team in training camp and served as Newcastle’s third-choice keeper during Dubravka’s absence last term. Max Thompson will be buzzing to be with the first team at just 16-years-old.

This friendly will be streamed live for free on NUFC TV. It’ll be great to see the lads back in action especially the ones who missed the backed of last season with injuries. Jamaal Lascelles, Ryan Fraser, and Isaac Hayden should all be involved today.

    I’m perfectly chilled, what on earth makes you think I’m not? Haha I’ve said before if you want to view everything through rose tinted glasses and rainbows then that’s fine, I’m just a bit more realistic and grounded. I literally said hopefully fans back will be a positive thing, but the flip side I understand their frustration if things don’t start well. Don’t see anything wrong in that to suggest such awful doom and gloom.

    😆 rainbows

    Most don’t worry about things they can’t control but you always seem to always worry about this or that. I’m just saying sit back relax and see what happens.

    My only post today didn’t have any worry in it? I wished fans return had a good impact and understand fans frustration if things don’t start well. What are you on about?

    Am I allowed to post on here Mund? Or are you consistently going to reply to most of my posts, claiming I’m doom and gloom if I don’t post that everything is made out of kittens and candy?

    Well done, that’s one team list up.

    And who knows this might even be the good Hendrick twin, his brother was hopeless last year.

    We haven’t even got out of preseason and we have worries about West Ham?

    We don’t even know who will be in the side by the time we play West Ham but let’s stress about it now….
