“From nothing to something big ” – Many Newcastle fans are praising local lad on special day for him

“Legend” – A lot of Newcastle United fans wish Paul Dummett a happy birthday – as the Geordie defender turns 28.

Dummett was told back when he was 20 that he would never be good enough to play for Newcastle United – yet here we are seven years later, and he has made 163 league appearances for his boyhood club.

Dummett has developed into a solid Premier League defender and is now a fan-favourite.
