Shaun Newton

Squad Number: 26
Position: Midfielder - on loan
Born: 20th Aug 1975 (Camberwell)
Signed: 10th Mar 2005 (£10,000)
Contract: Details unknown
Previous Club: Wolves

The biggest bargain of all time?

Shaun Newton arrived at Upton Park via Molynuex back in March 2005 and has rarely failed to perform ably whenever called upon.

Okay, so his appearances since the Hammers were promoted back to the Premiership have more often than not come from the bench, but 20 appearances in the 05/06 season confirmed that he remained very much part of Alan Pardew's plans - until he was found guilty of taking cocaine after a routine drugs test following West Ham's 1-0 win over Middlesbrough in the FA Cup Semi-Final.

2006/07 Match Notes & Ratings

0-4 v Charlton Athletic (a) 24th February 2007
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Mullins, 72) If the idea of bringing him on was to give us some width it failed.

0-1 v Watford (h) 27th January 2007
by East Stand Martin

Got into one promising position and really should have scored. Otherwise looked worth about as much as his original transfer fee.

(Replaced Gabbidon, 81) You know times are hard when Newton has to play right back. Not as bad as he could have been, I guess.

3-3 v Fulham (h) 13th January 2007

(Replaced Gabbidon, 81) Please join me in a prayer for him never ever to play right back again.

3-0 v Brighton & Hove Albion (h) 6th January 2007
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Boa Morte, 73) Executed a sweet cross for the third goal; the ball was one of those Ďdefenders nightmareí deliveries.

3-0 v Brighton & Hove Albion (h) 6th January 2007
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Boa Morte, 73) A lively 10 minutes or so containing a shot and a cross for the third.

 

2005/06 Match Notes & Ratings

2-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 7th May 2006
by Gordon Thrower

A fine game Ė 10K must be knackered. Well I certainly canít remember when he last played 90. Cardiff slot will depend on Mattyís fitness I suspect.

1-0 v Middlesbrough (n) 23rd April 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Etherington, 89) Spent injury time getting behind the ball.

by Gordon Thrower

Fine goal and he obviously wanted to make the most of his rare start.

1-0 v Manchester City (h) 15th April 2006
by East Stand Martin

Very good effort - and a very well taken goal. Am I the only one wondering why we haven't used him when resting players earlier in the season?

1-4 v Bolton Wanderers (a) 11th March 2006
by Graeme Howlett

Ineffective. Tried to run at opponents but really doesnít have the pace or the skill. He usually is just on to close out games but this starting performance really shows that we need a genuine right winger. Blood a youngster!

2-2 v Everton (h) 4th March 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Etherington, 87) Like the other subs 10K was anonymous in the short time he was on the pitch.

2-2 v Everton (h) 4th March 2006
by Richard Osborne

(Replaced Etherington, 87) Touched the ball less than Teddy.

3-2 v Arsenal (a) 1st February 2006
by Gordon Thrower

The goal was superb but for me it was his tireless and selfless running to relieve the pressure up front, where he was often ploughing a lone furrow, that caught the eye.

2-1 v Fulham (h) 23rd January 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Etherington, 90) Not on for long enough to make an impact.

2-1 v Aston Villa (a) 14th January 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Worked his socks off and the Villa defence never quite came to terms with his running.

1-1 v Portsmouth (a) 26th December 2005
by Richard Osborne

Was everywhere. Pace, vision, tackling, getting back. Going forward he cut in and provided the overlap. Not a Yossi in quality but on his day was very very good.

1-2 v Manchester United (h) 27th November 2005
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Etherington, 89) Probably touched the ball no more than twice in the three minutes he was on the pitch.

1-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 20th November 2005
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Repka, 77) Came on and was his usual reliable self in the ten minutes or so he was given.

1-0 v West Bromwich Albion (h) 5th November 2005
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Benayoun, 90) Given a few minutes at the end. Not really enough time to make an impression, though he may also have been confused by the fact that he had replaced Yossi rather than Etherington for once!

0-1 v Bolton Wanderers (a) 26th October 2005
by Paul Eastwood

(Replaced Clarke, 72) Again, little time to impress but didnít do much wrong.

2-1 v Middlesbrough (h) 23rd October 2005
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Etherington 76) Usual solid cameo from 10K following his now ritual replacement of Etherington.

2-1 v Middlesbrough (h) 23rd October 2005
by Adam Leatherbarrow

(Replaced Etherington 76) Made a good couple of runs, wasn't involved much.

1-2 v Manchester City (a) 16th October 2005
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Etherington, 82) Not really on for long enough to influence matters.

1-2 v Manchester City (a) 16th October 2005
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Etherington, 82) Gave the Hammers a fresh turn of pace as they sought to come back from a two goal deficit. They half made it.

1-1 v Sunderland (a) 1st October 2005
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Etherington, 67) Good run-out and rarely lets us down when he comes on.

1-1 v Sunderland (a) 1st October 2005
by Greg Mansell

(Replaced Etherington, 67) Although it would force a bit of reshaping to the team, for my money, 10K is offering a real alternative to Etherington. Offered a threat when he arrived on what was a largely un-taxing day for Sunderlandís defenders.

1-1 v Sunderland (a) 1st October 2005
by Graeme Howlett

(Replaced Etherington, 67) A few good bursts down the flank without the final delivery to match. A useful player to have in the squad however, and well worth the hundred grand or so he had cost.

0-0 v Arsenal (h) 24th September 2005
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Etherington, 84) Brought on to replace the tiring Etherington and helped shore things up at the back in order to protect the point.

0-0 v Arsenal (h) 24th September 2005
by Greg Mansell

(Replaced Etherington, 84) Not much time for 10K to impress but did well with the few touches he had in ensuring we bagged a well deserved point.

0-0 v Arsenal (h) 24th September 2005
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Etherington, 84) A deceptive player. His main role as sub seems to be to provide a more defensive focus to the right side of midfield and though he does this well, he is surprisingly tricky when going forward too.

2-1 v Fulham (a) 17th September 2005
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Zamora, 64) A fair bit of running but got caught irritatingly offside from short balls where he ought to have been able to see across the line.

2-1 v Fulham (a) 17th September 2005
by Graeme Howlett

(Replaced Zamora, 64) Newton was introduced as the Hammers switched to five across the middle in order to defend their two goal lead. That lasted for all of 90 seconds(!) but Newts performed ably nonetheless.

4-0 v Aston Villa (h) 12th September 2005
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Etherington, 70) Came on for Matty and enjoyed the run out.

0-0 v Newcastle United (a) 20th August 2005
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Sheringham, 48) Got forward well until called upon to replace Konchesky in the left back position where he coped well for the most part.

0-0 v Newcastle United (a) 20th August 2005
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Sheringham, 48) Mr Versatile came on to replace Sheringham as part of a five man midfield before reverting to left back after the dismissal of Konchesky. A real little diamond.

3-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 13th August 2005
by David P Lewis

(Replaced Sheringham, 72) Steady enough 20 minutes or so though he might have scored late on.

1-0 v Preston North End (n) 30th May 2005
by Gordon Thrower

Another who ran his legs off and the clearance off the line was magnificent.

1-0 v Preston North End (n) 30th May 2005
by East Stand Martin

On this performance if Newton is worth £10k then David Beckham and Luis Figo together can be worth no more than 100 grand together. He was everywhere; both flanks, clearing goal-bound headers off the line - you name it, he did it.

2-0 v Ipswich Town (a) 18th May 2005
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Zamora, 79) Brought in to ensure there were no last minute hiccups. Unlucky to be dropped in the tactical shake-up after a good performance on Saturday.

2-2 v Ipswich Town (h) 14th May 2005
by Graeme Howlett

Yet another really impressive performance from Ten Grand, who was unlucky to have been substituted late on. Having already won promotion via the play-offs with Wolves and Charlton he certainly has the experience and nous for these games; on Saturday it showed.

Got through a prodigious amount of work, much of it off the ball where it doesnít necessarily catch the eye.

2-2 v Brighton & Hove Albion (a) 23rd April 2005

A couple of decent runs but Iíd like to see him try to dominate more.

1-1 v Millwall (h) 16th April 2005
by Gordon Thrower

There were times when you thought 10k was going to take the game by the scruff of the neck but he had this habit of then vanishing off the screen for long periods.

1-1 v Millwall (h) 16th April 2005
by East Stand Martin

Tried hard, put in plenty of effort, but didn't really make any impact apart from the odd success on the flank late on. Just doesn't seem to know the best ball to play at times.

3-0 v Coventry City (h) 9th April 2005
by Gordon Thrower

Heís one of those players that you kinda donít notice. However, he got through a lot of donkey work up and down the right hand side.

3-0 v Coventry City (h) 9th April 2005
by East Stand Martin

A fair game, worked hard on the right flank and was unlucky not to score with a tremendous shot which was well saved by Luke Steele.

1-0 v Burnley (a) 5th April 2005
by East Stand Martin

aka Shaun 'Ten Grand' Newton - Evil Criminal Pixie Mastermind. Eight out of ten owners said their cat preferred it.

2-1 v Wigan Athletic (a) 2nd April 2005
by East Stand Martin

Yet again a very solid workman-like performance. Unspectacular but did the simple things well allowing Reo-Coker, Noble and Harewood to really attack the Wigan defence. Would like to see him open up his legs though and really attack the left back, looked hesitant today as see still seeks to establish himself in the first team.

Beginning to link well with his new team-mates and looks particularly promising when he joins in with the attack.

2-2 v Leicester City (h) 18th March 2005
by East Stand Martin

Despite not looking fully settled in (as one would expect after just two games) Newts gave an encouraging performance at right-back, and supported well in attack.

1-1 v Crewe Alexandra (h) 15th March 2005
by East Stand Martin

Looked a lot better for having had a few more training sessions with his new team-mates. Some good runs going forward but was AWOL at the end when he lost Jones for the equaliser.

1-3 v Reading (a) 12th March 2005

Hadnít had much training with his team mates and it showed. Started off in a sort of wing back role that didnít seem to add much either defensively or in midfield.
