When you think of Newcastle United and Scottish players at the moment, you may think of international star Ryan Fraser or a former one in Matt Ritchie.

But now there’s another name to keep an eye on at Newcastle, Scottish teenager Elliot Anderson.

Born in North Shields, the recently-turned 18-year-old is eligible for Scotland and has represented the national team at youth level, currently an U19s player.

He’s started the season terrifically down south, scoring four goals in five Premier League U23s matches and a double in the Papa John’s Trophy against a senior Bolton side.

Now Steve Bruce has given him a taste of senior Newcastle United life. Anderson was on the bench for the first time in his career as the Toon won 2-0 against Crystal Palace.

While not appearing in this match, it’s a sign that Bruce and those at St James’ Park clearly rate the young Scotsman.

He’s another young Scot to add to the growing list of those currently in England, Billy Gilmour, Harrison Ashby, Kieron Bowie and Scott Banks just some of the Scottish teenagers at Premier League clubs.
