Meet The Magnificent Seven

Academy Manager Joe Joyce is proud that several of the club's youngsters have been called up for international duty in recent months

Meet the magnificent seven: each of these Newcastle United Academy starlets have been called up to represent their countries this year.

And Academy Manager Joe Joyce hopes that they can go on to achieve more international caps in the future as long as they continue to work hard and stay focused.

Adam Campbell won his first England under-17 cap during January's Algarve Tournament in Portugal, and netted on his debut against the host nation. Although the 17-year-old has already made his first-team bow for the Magpies, he is still in the second year of his Academy scholarship.

Freddie Woodman, 15, and Alex Gilliead, 16, have also both represented the Young Lions at under-17 level in 2012 while 15-year-old schoolboys Adam Armstrong and Kyle Cameron have featured at under-16 level in this season's Sky Sports Victory Shield.

Slovakian defender Lubo Satka, 16, has played at both under-18 and under-19 age group for his country in recent weeks while 15-year-old Daniel Barlaser made his first appearance for Turkey's under-16 team last month.

They all got together for this exclusive photograph at Little Benton and, writing in the monthly newsletter which is sent to the parents of all Academy players, a proud Joyce said: "It is a tremendous honour for each individual and it is recognition of the hard work and commitment they have shown over a number of years.

"Freddie and Lubo have not om;y been selected for their own age groups but have also made appearances for older age groups. This is an indication of how highly these players are regarded.

"Everyone involved in the 'development' of these players - families, schools, junior clubs, Academy staff - can rightly be proud of the boys' achievements.

"Hopefully, with the same commitment, these players can go on to achieve their full potential and, who knows, full international honours."
