Scoring hat-trick was fantastic - Ba

Newcastle striker Demba Ba says his family can go home happy having travelled from Paris to watch him in their 3-1 win at home to Blackburn, the Senegal international scoring all three goals.

Ba admits the match ball will take pride of place at his home after it was signed by his Newcastle team-mates.

The goals were the 26-year-old's first for the Magpies having signed in the summer from West Ham.
