Newcastle coach Beardsley: Youngster thrilled to play with Campbell

Newcastle United reserves coach Peter Beardsley says his young players were buzzing after playing alongside Sol Campbell last week.

Campbell featured in the reserves clash with Liverpool.

Beardsley told the Evening Chronicle: “For people like Matthew Grieve to play alongside a former England player is great.

“For Jeff Henderson to come on and replace a player like Sol Campbell may only seem a little thing, but for the young players they are massive. When people saw him jogging off the other night he then made a point of going to see Jeff before he came on.

“When you’re a young player and somebody of Sol’s stature does that it means a lot.”
