Newcastle United star Sean Longstaff is playing a key role for the club off the field.

The midfielder emerged as a first team member last season.

And now he is helping other youngsters at the club’s academy as they transition to first team training.

One such player is Longstaff’s brother Matty, who has shone in the Premier League this season.

The older Longstaff told ChronicleLive: “I remember when I was a young lad that used to go up (to first team training) and I used to be scared to talk to the old lads.

“You didn’t want to do anything stupid, you just wanted to get through it.

“So for me, having grown up with Tommy (Allan) and played in the Under-23s with them for the last couple of years, any young lad that comes up, I want to get on to them, speak to them and make them feel as comfortable as possible.

“Ultimately, when you do feel comfortable, that’s when you can perform your best.

“So that gives those lads coming up the best chance of performing in front of the manager.”
