Sean Longstaff scored the first league goal of his young career in Newcastle’s midweek Premier League game against Burnley.

The 21-year-old midfielder, who hails from just down the road in North Shields, opened his account for the club he’s represented since his youth team days – and in some style.

It all came Just four minutes after Fabian Schar had put Toon in front with a majestic drive from outside the area…


Longstaff then doubled the lead shortly thereafter by smashing home a loose ball in the 28th minute to finish a move he had actually started…

A special moment that was roared to the rafters by his Geordie brethren in the stands at St James’ Park.

There’s plenty of sporting pedigree in Longstaff’s immediate family. Indeed, his uncle is ex-Newcastle, Bolton and Celtic midfielder Alan Thompson and his dad, David, is one of the highest-capped players in Great British ice hockey history.

How about that? Proper canny, like.
