Former South Africa Striker's Son Joins Newcastle

Tyrique Bartlett, the teenage son of former South Africa international Shaun Bartlett, is hoping to make an impact in England after being cleared to play for Newcastle United's academy in the 2017/18 season.
The 17-year-old signed a three-year contract with the newly-promoted Premier League club earlier this year, but has been waiting for his international clearance before being able to start his new career in England.

Father Shaun spent six seasons at Charlton Athletic and is the second highest goalscorer in Bafana Bafana history, behind only Benni McCarthy with 29 in 74 caps.

Tyrique was born in Switzerland while Shaun turned out for FC Zurich, but is also reportedly also a naturalised English citizen after the time the family spent in South London.
