What the players say..

The fact that we all bring variety from different areas, have all had different upbringings in the game makes it a good mix. We’ll all work together towards a nice environment to train and play.”
– Dwight Gayle, Newcastle United

“Whoever enrols will have fun but it’s also about development and improvement too. It’s a real chance for the youngsters to develop their game quicker and at high level.”
– Matt Ritchie, Newcastle United

“I’ve came through the Academy and know that a lot of talent in the area can get missed. It’s a chance for people to get involved and get some top quality coaching.”
– Paul Dummett, Newcastle United

“This is the biggest area I have been to when it comes to grassroots football. It’s a one-club city and there’s so many people who are passionate about the game.
– Rob Elliot, Newcastle United
