Ten 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.

England under-16 international Mackenzie Heaney, who hails from Walker, featured in this season's run to the quarter-finals of the FA Youth Cup.

Owen Gallacher, meanwhile, has represented Scotland at under-16 level and is the son of former Newcastle player John, who scored seven times in 33 league and cup appearances in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Also joining the Academy are Nathan Harker, Owen Bailey, Yannick Aziakonou, Shane Donaghey, Dan Lowther, Lewis McNall, Craig Spooner and Callum Smith.

Academy Manager Joe Joyce said: "I would like to congratulate each of them on their achievement and wish them every success in the future.

"They can now concentrate on their upcoming GCSE exams and ensure that they achieve the best possible grades in the knowledge that their footballing future is secured for a further two years."
