bother for Daryl
The Dutch FA announced on Tuesday that Newcastle's Daryl Janmaat had withdrawn
from their squad ahead of two European Championship qualifiers.
The full back suffered a knee injury in Saturday's loss to Manchester City and
the Magpies confirm that he is returning to Tyneside for treatment - although
they stress it's a precaution and Janmaat hasn't yet been ruled out of the
Norwich game on Sunday week.
Janmaat's return means that Steve McClaren has five first team squad members
on international duty - three with Holland and one each with France and
There was no place for Cheick Tiote in the latest Ivory Coast squad,
Cisse was similarly overlooked by Senegal, DR Congo omitted Chancel
Mbemba and there was no Ireland recall for Rob Elliot.

with the aim of attracting new supporters to watch their local team.
In this region you'll find a good choice of games on offer, notably a cracking
FA Cup tie in prospect at Hillheads between Whitley Bay and Chorley.
Admission to the Northern League First Division game between North Shields and Dunston is just £1 for current NUFC season ticket
holders, while Gateshead have reduced prices for their meeting with
Cheltenham Town at the International Stadium to £10 for adults, £5
concessions and just £1 for U16s.

Freddie Woodman (Crawley Town):
The goalkeeper will miss Saturday's home game against Leyton Orient in League
Two while he's with England.
Remy Cabella (Olympique Marseille):
Failing to earn a recall to the French national team means that Cabella is in
line to feature in a home friendly on Friday against Ligue 2 side Nimes.
Shane Ferguson (Millwall):
A call-up to the Northern Ireland squad means that Fergie didn't feature in
Tuesday's Johnstones Paint Trophy tie at home to Northampton Town.
Haris Vuckic (Wigan Athletic):
Injury meant that Vuckic missed a fifth successive game for the Latics as they
faced Walsall in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday night.
Macaulay Gillesphey/Alex Gilliead (Carlisle United)
An England call-up for Alex means he'll be absent on Saturday, but Macaulay

now on public sale (online).
The visitors have announced discounted prices for away tickets of £10 for
adults and just £1 for bairns - rather than a reciprocal pricing initiative

Whoops, He did it Again... |
What's this all about then?
for a rambling explanation of sorts....
|On This Day in History
Born Or Died:
1896 Alf Maitland
born, Leith, Scotland.
Full back who built his reputation
with South Shields between 1919 and 1924 - where
controversy first surrounded him.
Alf claimed that he'd been offered £20 by Fulham to
throw a crucial promotion game in 1922, with an FA
commission later banning the Cottager in question for
Appearing for the Football League select XI, Alf was
sold by cash-strapped Shields to the smoggies in 1924.
However he lasted just over a year on Teesside before
leaving after an argument with club officials.
Making a £1,000 switch to Newcastle, Alf debuted in a
1-0 away win against Everton on Xmas Day 1924 and
appeared for the Magpies at both left and right
Playing 36 times during United's
1926/27 Championship-winning campaign, Maitland's
final game for the club came against Everton in May
1930, after which a difference of opinion with the SJP
board saw him depart.
Alf later appeared for Jarrow, Northfleet and
Salisbury City - serving as player/boss of the latter
between 1933 and 1935.
Working as a publican in North Shields at one point,
Maitland later settled in Leicester and his death was
recorded there in 1982.
1908 Death of Jimmy Stott,
1965 Death of Jimmy Nelson, 64. (1930-35)
1990 Karl Darlow born Northampton
Goalkeeper signed from Championship side Nottingham Forest in
August 2014 along with defender Jamaal Lascelles - the pair then immediately
returning to the City Ground on season-long loans.
Karl made his senior debut for Forest in May 2011, having moved to the City
Ground five years earlier following his release from Aston Villa's Academy.
Loaned to Conference side Newport County in the 2011/12 season, he later spent
time with Walsall before returning to Forest in January 2013 taking over as
first choice custodian from Lee Camp.
Forest were alerted to Darlow's potential by Eric Steele - at that time Villa's
goalkeeping coach and a Geordie who began his career at Newcastle, but never
graduated to the first team before moving on. Steele later worked for
Steve McClaren at Derby County.
And there's also a Magpie connection within the Darlow family, with Karl the
grandson of ex-Newcastle forward Ken Leek who passed away in 2007 at the age of
Following the expiration of their Forest loans, Lascelles and Darlow
joined pre-season training at United and both debuted in a 1-0 pre-season win at Gateshead in July 2015.
Darlow made his debut in the Capital One Cup victory over Northampton at SJP,
only being beaten from the penalty spot as United won 4-1.
1996 Andy Hall born, Gateshead
Academy striker who enjoyed a memorable introduction to the
club's U18 side, scoring in the first minute of his debut against Aston Villa
at Little Benton in March 2013.
Adding a second in that game as United won 4-3 (Adam Armstrong also bagging a
brace), Andy however failed to find the net in any of his 15 other subsequent
Promoted to the reserves for a 0-3 friendly loss at Hamilton Academical in July
2013, he also featured in a second string defeat at Consett four months later
but failed to play a competitive game for the U21s.
Released by United in 2015, Hall had a short trial with Barnsley before
enrolling at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut, USA to play for
their Pioneers side.
