Some Newcastle United fans flocked to a tweet that was recently posted by the Toon’s official Twitter account in which they relayed the news that Stan Flaherty scored for Newcastle’s U23s in their Premier League 2 clash with Fulham’s U23s.
The 18-year-old’s 87th-minute goal gave the Toon a late 2-1 lead in this game and that is how this contest ultimately finished.
Flaherty, who is an attacking midfielder that can also play at both left and right midfield, has scored more Premier League 2 goals (three) than any other Newcastle United U23s player this season, with his latest goal versus Fulham taking his tally for the 2020/21 campaign up to three Premier League 2 goals.
So, how did these Newcastle United fans react to the club’s tweet relaying the news that Flaherty scored late on in this U23s game?
