Former NUFC duo Shola Ameobi and Sammy Ameobi BOTH got on the scoresheet this weekend for Notts County and Bolton respectively, with the latter scoring a stunning solo goal in his man of the match performance for The Wanderers.
Sammy was released by Newcastle over the summer and rejoined newly promoted Championship side Bolton.
His goal superb effort here ended his 10 month goal drought, giving Bolton their first win of the season in a 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday:
Happy to have this man back, @OfficialBWFC fans?

It wasn’t quite as impressive as Sammy’s long range strike, but it’s great to see the Mackem Slayer is still scoring goals in black and white!
The first time the pair have scored on the same day since August 2013!
