The Academy

As of 24 July 2010.[1][2]

The objective of Newcastle's Academy is to develop players and their football-playing abilities to their fullest potential, so that these players might someday contribute to Newcastle's success. This is made possible by guaranteeing the best training, education and management to the region’s most promising players. Newcastle United is among those teams that run an Academy for their youth players without actually having their own youth training facility. This means that the youth teams practice at different locations, in facilities rented from universities or from the city. However, they are in the process of building their own purpose-built Academy.

The academy comprises age-group teams ranging from Under-9's up to the flagship Under-18's, who currently compete in Group D of the FA Premier Academy League and in the FA Youth Cup (a tournament which they have won twice). They play their home games at academy base at Little Benton, located to the immediate south of Darsley Park. FA Youth Cup home games are usually played at St James' Park.

In 2001–02 the Academy were the inaugural winners of the FA Premier Academy League. Notable graduates include former number nine Andy Carroll, now at Liverpool, Northern Ireland international Aaron Hughes, now at Fulham, current Celtic coach Alan Thompson and retired England international Paul Gascoigne as well as current first team defender Steven Taylor and striker Shola Ameobi.
