Darlington Sign JJ Hooper

Darlington have signed Jonathon James Hooper on a work experience loan from Newcastle United.

The 19 year old Greenwich born forward is expected to go straight into the side that faces Spennymoor in the League Cup tomorrow night.

JJ made his debut for Newcastle United’s under-18s against Chelsea on the opening day of the 2010/11 season where he hit a hat-trick.

The forward has made six appearances for the Magpies’ reserves this season, mainly operating on the left hand side of a three pronged attack, scoring once.

The tall, strong frontman was previously with Cray Wanderers and Sevenoaks FC before his move to Newcastle United.
