Adam Armstrong gives his all for first team place at Newcastle Utd

WORKING HARD ... Adam Armstrong.

ADAM Armstrong vowed to give everything as he attempts to establish himself at Newcastle United.

The teenage striker has been on the first-team bench for the club’s last two Premier League games.

And United manager Alan Pardew has promised Armstrong – who has been prolific at Under-18 and Under-21 level this season – an opportunity between now and the end of the season.

“He’s doing absolutely brilliantly for us,” said Pardew.

“He’s flying the flag for the Academy at the moment with his attitude, his application and his quality.”

For his part, Armstrong – who turns 17 on Monday – is keeping his feet on the ground.

“It’s been good to be involved in the first team,” Armstrong said.

“I’ve just got to work hard every day on training, and hopefully I’ll get a chance. It’s important that I give everything whatever level I’m playing at.”

England Under-17 international could again be on the bench for this afternoon’s game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Pardew is short on striking options, with leading scorer Loic Remy suspended and striker Papiss Demba Cisse sidelined with a back problem.

Armstrong has scored 13 goals for the club so far this season. He has scored another seven times for his country.
