West Ham fans excited by young midfielder’s potential

Nathan Holland made his first-team debut for West Ham United on Tuesday night, with the 19-year-old playing the final 30 minutes of the 3-0 win over Bolton Wanderers in the EFL Cup.

The teenager joined West Ham from Everton in January, and has previously drawn comparisons with Ryan Giggs for his style on the football field.

Holland has some way to go if he is to match Giggs’ achievements on the pitch, but there is certainly a lot of excitement around the winger’s potential at the London Stadium.

After the clash with Bolton, Holland took to Twitter to reveal his delight after impressing on his competitive debut for the Hammers.

The message was retweeted by West Ham captain Mark Noble, and a number of the club’s supporters were quick to offer their congratulations to the former Everton youngster.

Holland might well have to bide his time before appearing in the Premier League, but after getting 30 minutes of competitive first-team action under his belt, the attacker is well-placed to work his way into the plans of head coach Slaven Bilic.
