Newcastle United youngster Sean Longstaff scored against AFC Wimbledon.
Newcastle United youngster Sean Longstaff continues to impress during his loan spell at Blackpool.
The 19-year-old midfielder netted the only goal of their 1-0 win over AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.
He has made a strong impression for Gary Bowyer’s side, scoring four goals in four games.
Longstaff scored in the second half of the match to give Blackpool the win, but came off injured before the final whistle.
The young midfielder is a highly talented player, and goals from the midfield are an added bonus for him. It will only add to his confidence.
The youngster said after the match that the injury is not serious, and that he will be fit to play Blackpool’s next game against Scunthorpe.
Newcastle United fans have taken to social media network Twitter to praise the youngster for his start to the season with the Seasiders. Here are some of the selected tweets:
