Adam Sadler has been named new reserve-team coach at Newcastle United.

Sadler replaces Lee Clark, who left last week to join Glenn Roeder as Norwich City assistant manager.

Sadler has already been assistant academy director and goalkeeping coach with United, and Sam Allardyce has obviously seen enough in him to promote him yet again.

There has been a lot of talk coming out of East Anglia that Sadler was to link up with Roeder and Clark at Carrow Road, but this has not turned out to be the case.
