Sean Longstaff
Local lad and his younger brother Matty following in his footsteps...

Been a while since we had a local hero and i must say that Sean is showing all the right credentials to become just that.

With Rafa's guidance he can flourish.... and indeed so can Matty.

Their father David is an ice hockey legend representing England after also being a local legend at his sport.

Also their uncle is Ex Newcastle and Celtic player Alan Thompson.

Great to see local lads breaking through.
He plays like a young Michael Carrick. Composed on the ball, eye for a pass, eye for goal, covers the ground well and seems to know that midfield role as well as anyone I have seen at the club for a while.

Really impressed with the way he has developed since Boxing Day, thrown in at the deep end and learned to swim fast.
Let's hope we can keep him at the club and Ashley doesn't cash in on him as he did with Carroll. Hopefully with Sean being a local lad he may not have his head turned as easily as a player from out of the area.
Brilliant goal for him just now!
