Dummett delighted seeing more Geordies on Newcastle pitch

Newcastle United defender Paul Dummett is delighted seeing more Geordies on the pitch.

The victory over Manchester United saw three Geordies on the pitch - Andy Carroll joining the Longstaff brothers, with Dummett on the bench.

As a Newcastle fan himself, Dummett is pleased to see it.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "In my time in the first team we haven't had so many Geordies, so it is nice to have a few involved.

"Obviously bringing Andy back and then them two coming through it's good to have a few local lads in the team and it shows there's talent in the area.

"The manager has to take a bit of credit for for giving Matty the chance because there were other players that you could have easily played in that game on Sunday, but Matty has repaid the faith manager put in him to play him and credit to both of them for for the way it was handled."
