Fans of Newcastle United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which Elliot Anderson reflected on making his professional debut for the club against Arsenal on Saturday.
Having been a part of Newcastle United since the age of eight, Anderson made his debut for the club’s U18 side as a 15-year-old back in 2018, before making his debut for the U23 side in 2019 and signing a long term contract on his 18th birthday last November.
And, after impressing in the U23 side, scoring six goals and providing one assist over his eight appearances in all competitions so far this season, the central midfielder began training with Steve Bruce’s first-team squad, which eventually led to the Scotland U19 international making his debut for the club on Saturday, in the 2-0 third-round FA Cup defeat to Arsenal.
Following the match, the 18-year-old took to Twitter, stating that it was a ‘dream come true’ to make his debut for his ‘boyhood club’, before claiming that he will ‘keep pushing’ forwards in his career.
And, in reaction to his post on Twitter, fans of Newcastle flocked to have their say on the matter, with many praising the youngster for his achievement and performance in the fixture.
