Dominic Ball was an unused substitute for Tottenham Hotspur in their 2-1 Premier League victory over Hull City on Sunday.
It was the first time the 19-year-old defender from Welwyn had been named as a first team substitute in a league game.
Ball, an England U20 international who formerly played for Welwyn Pegasus, told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “It was special to be on the bench in the Premier League, I have been on bench in the Europa League, but as a kid it has always been my dream to play in the Premier League and this was just another step closer to fulfilling that dream.”
Spurs won the game 2-1 with goals from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen.
Ball added: “It was a great result for the team after going 1-0 down so I’m looking to push on now and hopefully make my debut.”
