Plenty of Newcastle talent on view tonight

10th July Darlo v Newcastle poster


Newcastle United have named the “non-league Mahrez” in their squad for the big friendly against Quakers at the Northern Echo Arena.

Yasin Ben El-Mhanni, who has also played twice for the first team played in the game at the Arena last summer. He played non league football at Farnborough and Lewes, won several football skill competitions, and earlier in his career was good enough to be a body double and skill adviser for Neymar in a commercial. He was once dubbed the “non league Mahrez” because of his Moroccan heritage and skills.

The expected squad is:

Nathan Harker (GK)
Liam Gibson
Curtis Good

Michael Newberry
Callum Williams

Owen Bailey
Yannick Aziakonou
Daniel Barlaser
Yasin Ben El-Mhanni
Jack Hunter
Liam Smith
Callum Smith
Dan Ward
Owen Gallacher
Mackenzie Heaney
Luke Charman
Lewis McNall
Adam Wilson
Elias Sorensen
