Newcastle To Sign Up And Retain Their Top Youngsters

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015 · 68 Comments

Newcastle fans will have been heartened last night – not by the overall display of Newcastle or our patched up defense, but the sparkling form of winger Rolando Aarons.

The youngster scored a great goal with an overhead bicycle kick in the second half, and then followed that up with a second goal within the minute, when he quickly controlled a loose ball outside the penalty area, and then hit it into the roof of the net to bring Newcastle back to 4-3 with about 14 minutes to play against Portland Timbers.
