Name: Philip Airey Date of Birth: 14/10/91 Position: Striker Club: Newcastle Previous clubs: none International caps: none Newcastle are well known for their centre-forwards and youngster Philip Airey looks to be a future star of St James Park. Airey joined the Newcastle Academy when he was just 10 years old, working his way through the ranks before making his first team debut as a substitute on January 8th 2011 in the FA Cup tie against Stevenage. Airey has been a regular for Newcastle’s reserves in recent seasons with an impressive scoring record which earned him his first team call-up under new manager Alan Pardew. Airey said about his first team debut “It wasn't ideal circumstances but great that I got on and I'm grateful for that. I thought I did well the time I was on, had a few touches and I've got to just keep on pushing myself." Unfortunately just days after his debut Airey suffered a hamstring injury in training which kept him out of the team for a number of weeks. The timing is a cruel blow for Newcastle who are extremely short on Strikers following Andy Carroll’s move to Liverpool and Shola Ameobi out with a long term injury. It has recently been reported however that Airey is back in training and could get his Premier League debut before the end of the season.
