The highly-rated midfielder completed a switch to Pools in the summer of 2017 following his departure from Cambridge United.

A product of Newcastle United’s Academy, Newton was on the Magpies’ books as early as nine-years-old and made a debut for their Reserve Team in 2008.

The box-to-box midfield star gained senior experience through an 18-month loan with Scottish outfit St Mirren during which he scored in their League Cup Final triumph over Hearts in 2013.

When he was released by The Magpies, Newton made a move to Rotherham United where he spent a season before joining Cambridge in the summer of 2015.

The athletic performer made 32 appearances for The U’s during 2016/17 and had options to stay in the EFL following his release but the lure of a return to his native North East proved too much and Pools won the race for his signature.
