Paul Dummett (born 26 September 1991) is a Welsh international footballer who plays for Newcastle United.

Dummett began his career with his local side Newcastle United. After progressing through the youth ranks at the club, he had loan spells at Gateshead and Scottish side St. Mirren. He made his Premier League debut in the 2013–14 season and scored his first Premier League goal against Liverpool on 19 October 2013.

Club career[edit]

Newcastle United[edit]

Dummett started his career in the Newcastle United youth system,[3] captaining the club's reserve team on several occasions.

Loan to Gateshead[edit]

Dummett joined Conference National side Gateshead in March 2012, initially for a month-long loan,[4] which was then extended until the end of the season,[5] helping the team keep six clean sheets from ten matches.[6]

Loans to St. Mirren[edit]

The following season he was loaned to Scottish Premier League club St. Mirren.[7][8] Dummett made his debut in a 2–0 win over Heart of Midlothian on 15 September 2012, and scored his first senior goal in a 1–1 draw against St. Johnstone.[9]

After returning from his loan spell at St Mirren,[10] Dummett made his début senior appearance for Newcastle in an FA Cup tie away defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion on 5 January 2013. After the match, Dummett spoke out on his debut, that his Newcastle United debut was a dream come true.[11] He then rejoined St Mirren on 31 January 2013 on loan for the rest of the season.[12] Dummett played the full game for St. Mirren in their Scottish Communities League Cup Final 3–2 win over Hearts, the club's first major cup for 26 years.[13] Dummett also set up the second St. Mirren goal in the 46th minute, for Steven Thompson, which put the Saints 2-1 up.

Return to Newcastle United[edit]

Dummett returned to Newcastle, and signed a one-year contract extension.[14] He scored his first goal for Newcastle in a 2–2 draw at home to Liverpool in October 2013.[15] Just weeks after scoring his goal for the club, Dummett put pen-to-paper on a new contract at Newcastle, signing a deal that could extend until 2019. [16]

On the final day of the season, Dummett made a challenge on Liverpool forward Luis Suárez. Due to knee surgery which jeopardised Suárez's chances of playing at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, fans in his native Uruguay sent online death threats to Dummett.[17]

Dummett started the 2014–15 season as Newcastle's first-choice left-back, with Davide Santon injured and Massadio Haidara on the bench. Dummett grabbed his second Magpies goal on 25 September 2014, scoring a late winner in extra-time against Crystal Palace in the League Cup. [18] Playing alongside skipper Fabricio Coloccini in the centre of defence, Dummett helped Newcastle keep clean sheets in victories over Manchester City and West Bromwich Albion.[19][20]

International career[edit]

Dummett qualifies to play for Wales through his Welsh grandfather.[21] He was capped at under-21 level for Wales.[8] He made his senior debut for Wales in the match against the Netherlands on 4 June 2014, coming in as a substitute in the 83rd minute.
