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
