Pardew pleased with Newcastle goalkeeper stocks

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is happy with their goalkeeping stocks.

Pardew is likely to grant current No 1 Tim Krul an extra rest period after the Dutchman spent part of his summer with his national side at Euro 2012.

It means that Rob Elliot or Steve Harper could get their chance between the sticks in the opening friendly of the summer against German minnows Chemnitzer, while reserve-team shot-stopper Jak Alnwick will also be looked at closely this summer.

Pardew told the Evening Chronicle: "It's one area that we are well stocked in. But it's a moveable feast."
