Two of Newcastle United's promising young strikers have received international recognition from England.

Consett-based Alex Gilliead, 15, has been selected for the upcoming England Under-16 squad for their Victory Shield fixture against Wales on Thursday, October 27.

Cheltenham Town's Abbey Business Stadium is the venue and the St. Bede's Catholic School pupil's call-up comes after he attended a training camp at Keele University along with 14-year-old goalkeeper Freddie Woodman in August.

Gilliead starred for the Magpies' under-16 side as they won the Total Football Show Academy Cup in July, and has also played in the Lion City Cup in Singapore and the Nike Cup with Newcastle in recent months.

Meanwhile 16-year-old Adam Campbell, one of the key players in Joe Joyce's table-topping under-18s side, has been placed on standby for England Under-17s.

The first-year scholar could take part in the Three Lions' UEFA European Under-17 Championships qualifying tournament in Bosnia and Herzegovina between October 26 and October 31.

Campbell won Most Valuable Player at the Manchester United Premier Cup in the summer of 2010 and since then has gone on to make his Reserve debut just a few days after his 16th birthday, scoring in his second Reserve appearance.
