Southampton’s latest academy product, Andy Robinson, was delighted to make his first-team debut on Tuesday and admits it came as a shock. The official Southampton website reports.
The midfielder came on for the injured Jack Cork, ten minutes from time in Saints’ Capital One Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.
“It happened quite quickly and was unexpected, but it was great to get on”, Robinson told Saints Player. “This was the first time I’ve even been on the bench, so to come on was a bonus.
“I’m really happy. I’ve been around [the First Team] a lot, and they are really great with me and the other young players.”
The 19-year-old is part of the club’s Under-21 side, who are currently unbeaten and lead the table.
He is very pleased with his personal progress and feels he is on track to succeed with the south coast club.
“I’m really happy at the moment. I had a little blip with an injury but I’m still ahead of where I thought I’d be at this stage”, he added.
“I take everything as it comes, like the other night because that was unexpected. It’s about working as hard as you can.”
