Paul Dummett: Full of praise for Alan Pardew

ummett has broken into the Newcastle side this season, making nine appearances, including starts in the last two wins against Aston Villa and Hull City.

The full-back enjoyed a successful spell on loan at St Mirren last season and Pardew is thought to be a big admirer of the 22-year-old.

Dummett is grateful to Pardew for putting his faith in him and giving him the nod in the starting XI ahead of some more experienced performers.

"Alan Pardew has had the faith in me to give me a chance of playing in the Premier League," Dummett told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle.

“Also in terms of coaches the likes of Willie Donachie, Peter Beardsley, Kenny Wharton, Steve Stone, John Carver, Danny Lennon and Tommy Craig have done so much for me.”

The 22-year-old also thanked his team-mates for the support they have given him when he has played this season.

“Everyone is really good with me and all of the players give you advice before the game," added Dummett.

“Guys like Steven Taylor and Shola Ameobi have been really helpful as well, as they know what it’s like to be a young, local lad coming into the team.

“But I would have to say Willo (Mike Williamson) as he speaks loads to me before and during matches. He has been great.”
