Exciting talent Ryan Donaldson was delighted to make his Newcastle debut in their friendly defeat to Mallorca.
"The manager told me to get on and I was really excited. The conditions were difficult - after my first sprint after I came on I was dripping wet with sweat.
"It was hard but great to play against a La Liga team - a great experience. They were a really good team, they passed the ball well and kept their shape well.
"For me, though, that is the sort of experience you want."
