Sixteen-year-old Isaiah Brown looks back on his first ever appearance for West Bromwich Albion at senior level.

West Bromwich Albion midfielder Isaiah Brown has described his senior debut as "a dream come true".

The 16-year-old came off the bench during the second half of West Brom's 3-2 loss to Wigan Athletic at the weekend to become the second youngster player in Premier League history.

"The result was disappointing – we have to learn from it and move on – but I was delighted just to get my debut in the first team," Brown is quoted as saying by the Express & Star. "It's something I've been waiting for and it's a dream come true for any young player.

"Steve Clarke kept saying 'Izzy, keep warm' and I was just waiting for the time when he said 'Izzy, get your shirt on'.

"When that happened I don't know what I was feeling. I was nervous, happy and excited – all those emotions in one. I can't describe what it was like. There is no word other than amazing."

The youngest player to feature in the English top flight is Fulham's Matthew Briggs.
