Newcastle United's 16-year-old forward just keeps on scoring.
Newcastle United’s teenage striker Lewis McNall just cannot stop scoring, as he proved when he made it 10 goals in 10 starts for the Magpies under-18s against their Manchester United counterparts on Monday evening.
McNall made headlines back in September when he scored a hat-trick against the same opponents in a 3-2 victory, and now the 16-year-old has added yet another goal to his tally.
Newcastle have a number of exciting young strikers on their books right now, with Adam Armstrong arguably the pick of the bunch, but the way McNall is playing there is a good chance he could one day follow his older teammate into the first-team.
Newcastle’s senior side has struggled for form this season but prior to the international break it seemed they had turned a corner, and Steve McClaren’s men have finally lifted themselves out of the bottom three.
There is still a lot of work to do, but if they can secure their top flight status and continue to develop players like McNall the future looks bright at St James’ Park.
Along with McNall’s opener Newcastle also had Luke Charman to thank as he slotted home with 20 minutes remaining.
