'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Exclusive: 'There is a real toughness in the camp'

Newcastle United's 19-year-old speedster Jonny Godsmark has been an up-and-comer in the Toon ranks for the past three seasons. He has been dubbed a speed-demon by his peers and has also made it to the Magpies bench on a number of occasions.

The Newcastle-born player has been instrumental in the commendable performance of the Newcastle United Reserves this season, and he hopes that it will continue for the upcoming games.

Speaking exclusively to Vital Newcastle the talented Geordie youngster spoke of the upcoming encounter with Manchester United, and about the increasing number of talented youngsters coming into the Academy.

'The lads are confident [ahead of the clash]. We've only been beaten once since September 2008 and there is a real toughness in the camp at the moment. I think we have a slight edge over [Manchester United] as our team-work and commitment will be better.'

On the subject of plying his trade with other talented youth players, and about his performances for the Toon, Godsmark was analytic. He also hoped that his good performances will not go unnoticed, and like the other players before him, he can break into the United first-team.

'There are a lot of great young players that have joined the Academy over the last few seasons and it is great [as a professional] to work with them. Players from all over the world [have signed with us] but that is not to say they are better than the home-grown talent. Some of Newcastle's best young players are local lads. Andy Carrol, Steven Taylor, Peter Ramage (who has moved on), are examples. I think the club has a good mix and variety at the moment with foreign players as well as home-grown players which will help us greatly.'

Stay tuned for the second-part of the interview where Jonny reveals his race with Oba Martins, and Nile Ranger's pace!
