Donaldson delighted with Newcastle breakthrough

Exciting talent Ryan Donaldson was delighted to make his Newcastle debut in their friendly defeat to Mallorca.

The 17 year-old striker told the Evening Chronicle: "It was really good. I was hoping to come on, but did not really expect to.

"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."
