Newcastle United U-23’s are set to play Norwich City in a Premier League 2 clash at St. James’ Park tonight, and not only is the game set to be streamed live on NUFC TV, the club have confirmed that Jonjo Shelvey is set to feature, with senior players Rolando Aarons, Freddie Woodman and Jamie Sterry also likely to be involved.
Shelvey was an unused substitute at Swansea yesterday having completed a three-match ban following his red card on the opening day of the Premier League season, and he is set to play tonight to get some much needed minutes under his belt after a month out.
Admission is free for season ticket holders and members at St. James’ tonight (£3 for adults / £1 concessions), however fans unable to make it will be able to stream it for FREE on NUFC TV for the 7pm kick off.
Peter Beardsley’s men have won two out of their three league games thus far in the Premier League 2 and it will be interesting to see how they fair tonight with the addition of at least four members of the senior squad.
