Charlie McNeill has started life at Stevenage Town fantastically, as he scored on his full debut for the club.

The England striker scored the first in a 3-0 away victory to Leyton Orient, to send them to third in the League One table.

This is a remarkable start from Stevenage, given the fact they were only promoted to the league this year. They also have one of the cheapest squads in the entirety of the division – which makes it even more impressive.

Can they continue the stunning form? We hope so, as we’ll see Manchester United loanee Charlie McNeill flourish along the way.

Charlie McNeill scores debut goal for Stevenage

McNeil starts life in the third tier of English football splendidly, with a goal on his debut, and a win.

The 19-year-old will be more than happy with the start of his second loan spell. Last season he spent life in League 2 with Newport County, where he bagged two goals in 20 games, including one ‘unstoppable‘ finish.

Now he’s already halfway to his tally, in an even better division and an even better side. He’ll hopefully go from strength to strength.

Naturally, the young man was delighted with his first outing, he spoke to the club’s media following the result and had to following to say on his debut.

“I loved it. You know, 60 minutes, 3-0 win, goal – it’s everything I could’ve asked for really. Amazing. Loved every minute of it.”

The finish sent the Stevenage fans wild

Stevenage fans reciprocated the love for McNeil.

The away side managed to get some coverage from the stands of the McNeil strike. It sent the Stevenage faithful into a state of sheer delirium.

When probed about the away support, McNeill had the following to say.

“They were magnificent all the way through the game. They kept us going in the hard times that we had. Thanks to them for coming down and supporting us.”

The young forward’s movement was great for the goal. He got ahead of his man at the front post and got the deftest of touches off what we think was his knee to fly into the bottom corner.

With the ongoing uncertainty of the striking position at the moment at Old Trafford, hopefully, McNeil can continue his fine form and he may have a shot at leading the line for United one day.
