Newcastle starlet Adam Armstrong lights up League One

Published Add your comment

On loan Newcastle youngster, Adam Armstrong continued to show huge potential as he scored his fifth goal in his first three matches for Coventry City on Tuesday.

The League One side signed Armstrong on a youth loan deal until 16 January, and the striker has already established a two goal advantage as the league's top goalscorer.  

Armstrong has been clinical in providing Coventry City with a cutting edge to help them reach the top of the table, with a 100% record of three wins out of three.

The striker has scored at least a goal a game so far this season, his latest coming in a 3-2  victory over Crewe Alexandra at the Ricoh Arena on Tuesday night. 

"I've set my standards now and hopefully I can get more goals," Armstrong said.

"I want to push on as a player and score as many goals as I can."

Armstrong has proven to be a big hit with Sky Blue's fans after posting on Twitter that he promises to score a hat-trick in the near future.

"Great 4-0 win away to Millwall, lads were excellent and so were the fans! Happy to have got 2 goals! sorry I didn't get my hat trick😂 #soon"


The 18-year-old has already made 15 Premier League appearances, his debut coming at a defeat to Fulham in early 2014, making him the second youngest player to play for the Magpies in the top flight after Kazenga LuaLua.

On current form, Armstrong could fill the void left by Andy Carroll at Newcastle United and become the next high profile young prodigy to be a huge success at the club. 

Coventry seems to have been the perfect move for the youngster and Armstrong will have another opportunity to impress when the Sky Blues line up away at Walsall this Saturday. 

Come January many fans will be sad to see Armstrong return to the Magpies but if his form continues, it won't be long until he is a regular in a black and white shirt.
