Newcastle United’s Shane Ferguson hoping for more time on the pitch

A GRUELLING first season back in the Premier League might be nearing its end for Newcastle United.

But defender Shane Ferguson isn’t even thinking of his summer holidays just yet.

The teenager made his latest appearance deep into injury time in Sunday’s 3-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.

And Ferguson – who came on for left-back Jose Enrique – is hoping for more minutes on the pitch before the end of a long campaign.

“I’ve just been training hard,” Ferguson told SportMail.

“I’ll have to train hard between now and the end of the season, and hopefully I’ll get another chance before the season ends.

“It’s been my best season at Newcastle since I’ve been here.”
