Newcastle United player told ‘He just has to be patient’ by loan manager
Three players out on loan came back to play for Newcastle United on Monday night.
The NUFC Under 23s playing against their Leeds United counterparts in the Premier League Cup.
Newcastle losing 3-1 but Elias Sorensen, Jamie Sterry and Liam Gibson all getting 90 minutes of football.
All three having struggled for game time since going out on loan in January.
Newcastle defender Jamie Sterry is one of those, temporarily joining League Two Crewe Alexandra but finding himself an unused sub four times and not getting on the pitch.
Crewe boss David Artell says Jamie Sterry ‘just has to be patient’, the Newcastle Unite defender arriving in the middle of a seven game unbeaten run. Crewe though losing on Saturday at home to Exeter, so maybe more of a chance this weekend of the defender getting his chance.
David Artell says that Jamie Sterry approached him and asked to play for Newcastle United’s Under-23s last night.
Not a bad night on a personal level as Jamie Sterry not only played the full game but also scored a rare goal.
Manager David Artell talking to official Crewe Alexandra website:
“Jamie came to me and said he needed a game.
“We have a game at Burton on Wednesday but he said that he wanted to go up and play for Newcastle and I said that’s fine.
“He played, he scored and that’s all good.
“It is good for him to play and I will ring Newcastle later today.
“Jamie will be off tomorrow and ready to train again Thursday.
“He is a good player, we know that, but he just has to be patient because of how the team had been playing.
“He has been fine.”
