Newcastle United’s youth system is in drastic need of change. Management, facilities, and overall mindset. The club seems to believe that former magpie Peter Ramage could fix the first part.

Peter Ramage came up through the academy himself and played for Newcastle United between 2004 and 2008, moved to QPR and ended his career in 2017 with American club Phoenix Rising. He got his start in coaching as an assistant with Phoenix Rising from 2018-2020 before now coming back to Newcastle United to hopefully give youngsters the tools needed to come up through the ranks.

You always love to see local lads return to the club in some way or another, and Ramage is no exception. Despite his inability to breakthrough to a Premier League squad after 2007, Ramage does know what it takes to work your way up through the ranks, and that could prove very useful to a lot of youngsters hoping to make the same jump.

Welcome back Peter, it’s where you belong.
