Apparently, Newcastle have taken the decision following a string of poor performances from their youth team. The Magpies have improved their first team significantly and they are hoping to build for the future as well. They are keen to succeed at the youth level and bring in a number of talented young players through the ranks over the next few seasons.
As per the club’s official statement, Newcastle Academy’s Head of Coach Development, Neil Winskill, will oversee Under-21s’ training until a replacement for Dickman is finalized in the coming weeks.
