Son of player signed by Kevin Keegan at Newcastle United makes his Under-18 debut for the club

The son of former Newcastle United defender John Beresford has made his Under-18 debut for the club.

Beau Beresford, a left-back like his father, started Saturday’s 2-0 Premier League Cup win over Nottingham Forest.

Michael Ndiweni and Ellis Staunton were on target for United.

Beresford senior, signed by Kevin Keegan from Portsmouth in 1992, spent six years at St James’s Park.
