It’s been a tough old summer for Newcastle United fans to endure, but our pre-season campaign has at least ended on a high.
In Sunday’s 2pm kick off at St James’ Park, we put in a superb 2nd half display to come away 3-0 winners against newly promoted Norwich.
Matt Ritchie opened the scoring, latching onto a loose ball after some good hold up play from Callum Wilson, with Dwight Gayle then bagging twice in an impressive cameo from the striker.
You can watch all three goals below:
A smart through ball from Fraser to put Gayle free for his first – followed by a quality finish with the outside of his boot – and a top class cross from Javier Manquillo to set up the striker’s second.
Elsewhere, it was also great to see Saint-Maximin back from illness, with Callum Wilson also returning from a hamstring issue and coming through unscathed.
Next up, our opening game of the 2021/22 Premier League season against West Ham next Sunday!
