Dennis Knight

Date of birth: 30/01/1994
Place of birth: Newcastle

Technically-gifted attacking midfielder who takes a good set-piece, Dennis joined Newcastle as an eight-year-old having played for Throckley Magpies and Walbottle Campus Technology College.

As a schoolboy in May 2007, he scored a hat-trick for Walbottle in the final of the Minute Maid Schools' Cup at Coventry's Ricoh Arena.

Supported Newcastle and Glasgow Rangers as a boy. Kaka is his football hero. Knight is creative, aggressive and likes to get forward.

Scored on his debut for the Reserves, when he came on as a substitute against Bedlington in the quarter-finals of the Sage Northumberland FA Senior Cup in February 2011.

In January 2012, Knight netted a sensational solo goal at the Sports Direct Arena as United beat Watford in the FA Youth Cup fourth round. However, just over a year later he left the Club by mutual consent.
