(Fan Footage) Florian Thauvin scores his first Newcastle goal, an acrobatic volley v Northampton Town

Newcastle United new boy Florian Thauvin scored his first goal for the club, on his first start, during the Capital One Cup game against League Two side Northampton Town.

Thauvin struck early, in the 3rd minute as he met fellow Frenchman Massadio Haidara’s long cross with an acrobatic attempt. Newcastle then doubled their lead 5 minutes later through Siem de Jong.

The match at St. James’ Park is not being televised but a fan video of the goal has made it’s way into the internet and can be seen below!
