Toon Kids Set For European Adventure
Newcastle United youngsters Conor Newton and Yven Moyo are among a 20-man Newcastle squad set to play Bordeaux tonight.
Midfielders Newton, 21, and 20-year-old Moyo are yet to make a senior appearance for the club, and have been included along with the slightly more experienced Gael Bigirimana, Mehdi Abeid and Adam Campbell as manager Alan Pardew uses the depth of his squad.
Senior striker Shola Ameobi (pictured right) is available after recovering from a groin injury and he was joined on the plane, which was delayed by snow, by keeper Tim Krul, defenders Danny Simpson, Fabricio Coloccini and Mike Williamson and frontman Papiss Cisse.
But there were no places for injured trio Davide Santon (groin), Cheick Tiote and Demba Ba (both hamstring).
Newcastle squad: Krul, Elliot, Simpson, Ferguson, Tavernier, Coloccini, Williamson, Perch, Anita, Bigirimana, Marveaux, Sammy Ameobi, Amalfitano, Abeid, Newton, Moyo, Cisse, Shola Ameobi, Campbell, Ranger.
