Paul Woolston.

Biography

Under-23s keeper who forced his way into the side towards the end of the 2018/19 campaign.

The youngster entered the limelight when appearing against the Reds' Reserves for Newcastle United as a schoolboy in 2014, making his debut at that level. The rookie kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 triumph, making superb saves to deny Paddy McNair and Andreas Pereira. He also appeared in an Under-18s win for the Magpies against a Reds team that contained Marcus Rashford in 2015. Capped by England at Under-18 and Under-17 level, Woolston has had plenty of youth loan experience around the North East with the likes of Gateshead, Darlington, Blyth Spartans and South Shields. After a trial spell at United, he initially started on the bench but played in the November 2018 friendly win at Morton. He kept a clean sheet on his return to Tyneside when the Reds won 5-0 against Newcastle at St James' Park and kept his place for the final game of the Premier League 2 season. However, he was forced off due to injury with United ahead in the game against Wolves, only for the visitors to win 3-2 and clinch the Division Two title.
