Newcastle Announce U23 Coaching Departure As Local Lad Makes Debut In Scotland

Newcastle United have announced that Gary Caldwell’s brief tenure as the U23 lead coach has come to an end. Caldwell was appointed just three weeks ago to come in after head coach Chris Hogg departed for MK Dons. Kevin Richardson will take the helm until a new U23 head coach is appointed which should be happening very soon.

It seems very strange that Caldwell lasted just three weeks, though that may have been in the initial agreement to join the club. However, it seems that it just didn’t work out as no new coach has been appointed and Richardson will oversee some fixtures before a permanent appointment is made.

In other news, local lad Tom Allan made his debut over the weekend for Greenock Morton. The 21-year-old came off the bench in a 3-1 win over Celtic B in the Scottish Cup with around 20 minutes remaining.

Allan joined Greenock Morton on deadline day along with U23 teammate Oisin McEntee, who is currently away with the Republic of Ireland’s U21 squad. This is a massive move for Allan, who turns 22 later this month.

The versatile attacker made his Newcastle debut in the FA Cup replay win over Rochdale in January 2020. He notched an assist on the goal by Joelinton. The youngster had racked up an impressive goalscoring record for the U23s that season.

However, he went on loan to League One’s Accrington Stanley last season. It was a lost period for Allan as he managed only 8 appearances with Stanley before being recalled in January.

Hopefully, he gets plenty of action with Morton Greenock and potentially earns a new deal. His current contract runs out next summer so we’re pulling for the local lad to do well on this loan move.

    pznewco is the company PCP set up fo the takeover – Mandy and Mehrdad.

    ncuk was allegedly the company PIF set up for the takeover – think it was made in Jan 2020, just after the news leaked the first time and had the personal updated around April when it looked like it was a done deal.

    what this news means now, no-one knows for sure apart from PIF themselves. could be something, could be nothing.

    The PIF should purchase Sports Direct and use that to buy us. Win win for everybody, we get our dream owners and the High Street gets rid of Ashley.
