Brad's Glad After Dream Return

Two goals on his comeback from injury meant Brad Inman was beaming after the under-18s beat Leeds

By Dan King

Brad Inman marked his first appearance since early September with two goals for Newcastle's under-18s on Saturday.

The midfielder, born in Australia but a Scottish under-21 international, hasn't played since starring in the Reserves' 2-2 draw against Liverpool on September 7 after being ruled out with a training ground injury.

But he marked his return in some style with two second-half goals against Leeds' Academy side at Little Benton, and is now planning to make up for lost time.

As he walked off the pitch, he told www.nufc.co.uk: "It's always good to get the first game back out of the way, and I enjoyed playing for the under-18s just to get a game under my belt.

"I was delighted to get 90 minutes and come through it."

The teenager's first goal came from a Dan Taylor flick-on while the second was a cool finish after he was slipped in by Michael Riley.

"The first one was a bit of a shank!", he admitted. "But the second one wasn't bad and it's great to get a couple of goals to build on.

"It's been a frustrating few weeks, because I felt like I was doing well and now I have to start again. But hopefully I can get back to playing now. I'll play a couple of games for the under-18s and then hopefully get back into the Reserves squad."
