Newcastle United confirm coach departure after 14 months

Dickman was appointed at Newcastle last October, just after the club was taken over by a consortium led by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund. The Magpies will look to confirm a new lead player development coach in due course with head of coach development Neil Winskill overseeing Under-21s training in the meantime.
