Newcastle Teenage Striker Buys A Goal At Last

8 years ago

It had been seven months since Adam Campbell last netted a competitive goal for Newcastle United’s reserve team, but he was finally on the score-sheet again; netting the equaliser as United drew 1-1 with Bolton at Whitley Park.

The 18 year-old spoke to the Shields Gazette and told of his delight at being back amongst the goals.

It has been a while since I scored, especially a competitive goal, so it was nice.

I was very pleased personally to get back on the score-sheet.”

The young forward also took time to praise team-mate Gabriel Obertan who is currently finding appearances for the senior side hard to come by.

It was good for Gabby to get back out on the pitch, he’s lightning quick.”

A spirited fight-back after a Bolton-dominated first half saw United take an equal share in the points. With the sides at a 0-0 deadlock at half-time, it took only 2 minutes of the second half for Tom Youngs to give the Wanderers the lead. On 72 minutes, however, a good run and cross from Obertan was met by Campbell to draw the Magpies level. Obertan might have won the game for United late on, but shot over the bar.

Newcastle’s young Australian defender Curtis Goode limped off just before the hour mark with a hamstring problem.

NEWCASTLE UNITED Reserves: Alnwick, Tavernier, Gillesphey, Bigirimana, Streete, Good (Miele, 59), Aarons (Roberts, 64), Quinn (Gilliead, 64), Obertan, Campbell, Armstrong.
