Following the recent operational changes in the Football Association`s Centres of Excellence programme for girls, Newcastle United have a new structure in place for next season.
The Magpies will continue to run Premier League first team and reserve squads to provide exit routes into the top level while the club will fully support the Newcastle girls FA Centre of Excellence programme and continue to offer recreational football for its under-16 members next season.
Most of Newcastle United`s present first team squad have been with the club since their early teens as part of the "Dreams to Excellence" programme put in place seven years ago.
Don Fenwick, who was manager of last season`s very successful under-16 Newcastle squad, says: "The new FA Centre of Excellence programme is there to identify players of outstanding ability and place them in an environment designed to produce football excellence in conjunction with personal development. As coaches and parents we have a responsibilty to give all young players the opportunity to reach their full potential."
Newcastle United`s Premier League preparation has resumed with Rob Atkin and Neil Baistow continuing as the first team management duo and the reserve squad will be managed by Don Fenwick and coached by Kris Glenwright.
FA Coach Lisa Bell will succeed Don Fenwick as the new under-16s manager for next season. Lisa comments: "The club has worked very hard behind the scenes over the last few weeks to ensure we can continue to offer these players regular football on excellent facilities. There will be some players moving into the FA`s Centre of Excellence structure but that gives the opportunity for others to gain a place in my squad."
