Alan Smith - back in training for Newcastle United

Alan Smith is back in training but may not play for Newcastle again until next season.

The last time Alan Smith played for us was back in January against Brucie’s louts. During that game his ankle was broken by Kieron Richardson and he’s been crocked ever since.

Whilst he hasn’t turned out on the pitch for us, Assistant Manager John Carver was keen to point out that he has still been contributing behind the scenes. Carver said:

Routledge and Smith could be back for ‘Boro trip.

Nontheless, it would be great to see him back to improve the squad even more.

Manager, Chris Hughton, confirmed today:
