Newcastle United's Sean Longstaff couldn't have asked for a better start to his loan spell at Blackpool - as he netted the winner on his debut.

The midfielder, who spent six months on loan at Kilmarnock last season, moved to Bloomfield Road on a half-season loan in July after the Seasiders fought off competition from a host of other clubs.

He was handed a first start for the Tangerines as they welcomed Milton Keynes Dons on Saturday, and the 19-year-old got off to a dream start.

Only six minutes in, Longstaff was on the end of a slick Blackpool move and found the bottom corner from 12 yards out.

Naturally, the youngster was delighted to net his first goal in the EFL which also helped to secure a first win of the season for Gary Bowyer's side.

"I’m buzzing, not just for me but for all the lads," he said, speaking to Blackpool's official website.

"To get the first win of the season breathes a sigh of relief and hopefully we can kick on from here.

"To get a goal on your debut is brilliant and everyone’s buzzing in the changing room.

"We all worked for each other and ground out the result, sometimes it wasn’t pretty at times, but we did the little things which came together and that’s how we wont the game."

Having returned to League One via the play-offs last season, Longstaff's side were keen to get points on the board early on.

Now, the Tyneside lad is hoping to see his new side kick on.

"The longer the wait goes for a win, the more tense everyone gets," he admitted.

"In the first home game of the season, it’s brilliant to get the win and get everyone on side.

"They’re a good side, they had spells in the game where they were on top. We coped with them well and restricted them to half chances, so hopefully we can build on this."
