Heroic debut for Southampton’s Sims

Southampton have established themselves as a production line for young talent and fans at St Mary’s have been given a fresh reason to get excited, following a superb debut from teenager Josh Sims.

The 19-year-old took just 41 seconds to shine on his Premier League debut, setting up Charlie Austin for the only goal of the game and giving Southampton all three points in their clash with Everton.

Sims ended up winning the Man of the Match award for the game, which is a tremendous achievement after five years working his way through the Saints’ illustrious youth academy before making his debut in yesterday’s win.

Naturally, Sims was delighted with his performance and took to social media after the game to celebrate his accomplishments.

Sims, who has earned a wealth of experience with England’s U17 and U18 sides, will now be looking to kick-on and earn further opportunities in the Southampton first-team and things look promising, with the youngster earning a wealth of plaudits for his performance.
