Adam Campbell went down in Newcastle history tonight as he became the youngest ever player to play in the black and white in Europe, Andy Carroll is the man that Campbell knocked out the history books.
Campbell has caught the eye with recent performances for the reserves and last week scored a hat-trick against Les Ferdinand’s Tottenham reserves which booked his place on the flight to Greece. On the night Campbell came on for Cisse with about 10 minutes to go, he showed good movement and a fantastic first touch.
Alan Pardew said after the match:
“I wanted to give Adam Campbell the tag of youngest player(in Euro history) he is such a nice lad and he deserves it”
I think Pardew will weave Campbell into the squad during the course of this season with a highly populated schedule for Newcastle,It looks like he has fitted into the squad nicely as team mate Danny Simpson gave Campbell a shoutout on twitter calling Campbell a ‘Good lad’
Overall it looks like Adam Campbell is going to be a regular in squad rotation from now on for Newcastle, so lets get used to seeing that bright hair more often and him banging them in the back of the net.
Best of luck Campbell!
