'A dream come true'

The 20-year-old winger made the first senior appearance of his career as he came off the bench for the last 28 minutes of the fourth-round replay.

And it was a memorable night for James, who capped a bright display by scoring a fine goal as he steered home a sweet half-volley.

James was delighted to be given his chance to shine after training regularly with the first team at Fairwood.

And having got a taste of senior football, James is hungry for more.

“To get an opportunity and get a goal was amazing,” he said. “It’s what dreams are made of.

“I’ve been working with the first team every day and, when you get to know the boys, you get more confidence.

“I felt like I would get my chance today when we went 3-0 up. But, when they made it 3-1, I didn’t know if would get on.

“As we started scoring goals in the second half, the manager wanted to rest players ahead of a big game against Burnley on Saturday.

“It’s a great start for me, but I need to kick on now. I hope to be involved against Sheffield Wednesday in the next round.”
