Three Toon Reserves Ink New Contracts

Victor Fraile

Paul Dummett, Conor Newton, and Michael Richardson have all renewed their commitment to Newcastle.

A trio of Newcastle United reserve players signed new contracts with the team Tuesday, according to The Chronicle. Defender Paul Dummett and midfielder Conor Newton, who both had successful loan spells with St. Mirren last season, were out of contract at the end of this month, but renewed their commitment to the club alongside midfielder Michael Richardson, who made two appearances for Gillingham in March. All three were part of the squad that finished second in the Hong Kong FC International Soccer Sevens Tournament earlier this summer, so it seems that they were always in Newcastle's plans despite rumblings that St. Mirren coveted Dummett and Newton on a permanent basis.

The three are all 21 years old, so they will need to be added to the club's 25-man squad list or sent out on loan.

Goalkeeper Jak Alnwick and midfielder Bradden Inman were also on the Hong Kong trip and have expiring contracts, but no announcement has yet been made regarding their future with the Toon. Inman scored five times while on loan at Crewe-Alexandra last season, while Alnwick received plenty of playing time as the keeper for the NUFC reserve side.

Who is Paul Dummett? Just ask Wikipedia.
