Published Add your comment

Steve Stone has been promoted to Newcastle's first-team coaching staff as new manager Alan Pardew pieces together his backroom team at St James' Park.

Stone is joined by Willie Donachie, who moves up from the club's academy to become development coach while Andy Woodman arrives from Charlton to become the club's new goalkeeping coach.

Peter Beardsley continues as reserve team manager.

Newcastle are also looking to make a further coaching appointment to work solely with the first-team squad.

Pardew said: "I am delighted to bring Steve, Willie and Alan on board and am sure they will do a tremendous job for the club.

"Keeping Peter with the reserves is important too as he has done a terrific job with the younger lads this season."
