Bruce Calls Up Young Forward To First-Team Training



With Callum Wilson likely ruled out until next month due to a thigh strain, Steve Bruce has drafted Dylan Stephenson to train with the senior squad according to The Chronicle. The 18-year-old has been on fire for the U23s so far this season with 5 goals in 5 appearances.

His exploits put him on the shortlist for the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for August. He scored 5 goals in 3 August league starts. Other youngsters in contention are:

Aston Villa’s Aaron Ramsey, Arsenal’s Omari Giraud-Hutchinson, Brighton’s Evan Ferguson, Chelsea’s Harvey Vale, Manchester City’s James McAtee, Norwich’s Jonathan Tomkinson, and Tottenham Hotspur’s Dilan Markanday.

Stephenson joins both Elliot Anderson and Joe White as 18-year-old’s involved in first-team training. The Geordie teenager was handed a professional deal earlier in the summer after an impressive campaign highlighted by a first-half hat-trick against Leeds in the FA Youth in April.

Dylan has primarily played striker in the early part of this season. He was often deployed on the right for the U18s, where he also managed to find the back of the net consistently.

Stephenson is another promising youngster who has risen through the Academy in recent years. Hopefully, his call-up to the senior squad will provide him with some valuable experience and help to accelerate his development.

    Did anyone listen to talk sport, the journalist, begging, i mean begging NUFC supporters to not protest or shout at Bruce. There was one NUFC Supporter that told them exactly what we feel about Bruce. They were saying he’s got every right to go on holiday!. He said ” I didn’t mind him going on holiday at all, I just hated him coming back and still being our manager.” Yes someone is rattled about this protest. In fact the journo, was just apparently talking with Bruce. how we have him all wrong!!!!!!you can imagine me screaming at the radio. I’ll not tell you what though you’d be horrified

    3 untested 18y olds in squad hope being part of the current set up at the club and the toxicity at the minute doesn’t set them back …. saying that Ashley could always sell them for less than a mill and watch while their values rise to £20 mill (arma,Mbabu,Toney) great business acumen from a tosser that employs head bobbers.

    If Barnes told Bruce that I guarantee Bruceless would’ve been straight down the pie shop to buy mikes favourite so as to smooth things over.

    I believe that there was a massive argument but it was probably about who had eaten all the jammy dodgers and not bought anymore.

    More likely the last slice of corned beef and potato pie …..I can just see the fatman fighting with Bruceless over it and it being like the borat fight in the first movie, fatman teabagging bruceless while Bruceless contemplates that there’s always a positive.
