Ken Goody, Academy assistant director, said: "We are pleased for him. It is nice to see another one come through.

"He has been as high as a kite. He has played all the levels already this year, U19, reserves and now the first team. His passing and composure on the ball was good in that last 15 minutes.

"He is still learning and keen to learn.

"It is good to see another one moving through. Perhaps the results of the U19 side are suffering but getting lads to the first team is our main aim."
