Spanish teenager makes Newcastle debut as Haris Vuckic makes goalscoring return
The forward, signed from Spanish club UE Cornella last month, played for the Under-23s in their 1-0 Premier League 2 win over West Bromwich Albion.
Haris Vuckic, back from a half-season loan at Bradford City, netted Newcastle’s winner at Kidderminster in injury time.
Fernandez was taken off early in the second half.
UE Cornella revealed that the 18-year-old had joined United last week.
Vuckic netted from a 93rd-minute corner to claim all three points for Peter Beardsley’s side at Aggborough, the home of non-league club Kidderminster Harriers.
Jamie Sterry, Curtis Good, Stuart Findlay, Dan Barlaser and Yasin Ben El-Mhanni were also in Beardsley’s side.
West Brom had Hal Robson-Kanu and Boaz Myhill in their line-up.
Meanwhile, United’s Under-18s will play their FA Youth Cup quarter-final against Tottenham Hotspur at St James’s Park on February 27 (7pm kick-off). Admission is free. Newcastle beat Portsmouth, Swansea City and Sunderland in the previous rounds.
