Watch: Young Newcastle loanee's superb solo effort on debut
By Harvey Byrne
On-loan Newcastle youngster Adam Armstrong scored a superb solo effort on his Barnsley debut on Saturday.
The 19-year-old forward made the move to Yorkshire in the summer window and he made his first appearance for the Tykes as a 62nd minute substitute against Preston.
The youngster impressed in his first outing for the club and bagged the winner on the 79th minute after Sam Winnall opened the scoring before Everton loanee Aiden McGeady levelled the scoreline.
The young starlet picked up the ball on the edge of the box and managed to turn his defender with a bit of skill before unleashing a cool finish around the opposing goalkeeper.

The young forward has recently signed a new deal at the Magpies before heading out on loan.
The England Under-19 international spent last season on loan in League One with Coventry, where he scored 20 goals in 40 appearances for the club.
He is highly rated at Newcastle and his current club Barnsley are just below the Toon on goal difference with the two sides picking up 12 points from their opening six matches.
