Eleven teenagers have been offered scholarships at Newcastle United's Little Benton Academy.
The young players will join the Magpies on a full-time basis in July after leaving school in the summer.
They include Lewis Gibson, whose older brother, Liam, has broken into the first team set-up in recent weeks.
Lewis, 15, made his Barclays Under-21 Premier League debut as a substitute against Derby County at the end of January.
Matty Longstaff, the younger brother of another Newcastle teenager, Sean, has been offered a scholarship too.
Also joining the Academy are Thomas Allan, Kieren Aplin, Lewis Cass, Isaac Gamblin, Jack Robson, Kurtis Russell, Ollie Walters, Kelland Watts and Adam Wilson.
The Club welcomes all of the new scholars to the Academy and wishes them well for the next two years and beyond.
