Unlucky not to score of first touch. Hopefully he, Chesters or one of two others get a few more minutes at home in last group game.

Bustling cameo, wasn’t it - lots of movement, desire to get involved, dictating how he wants the ball delivered to him. Lovely stuff

I’d be surprised if at least 3 of our kids didn’t feature heavily in that game, including at least one of them starting.

Topped the night off perfectly seeing him get a run out - looks a very good prospect doesn't he.

Nobles face when he was chatting to him after the final whistle, proud Dad look :grin:

There'll be a song about him to the tune of Dolly Partons 9 to 5 before you know it.

Very promising cameo.
Early days, but I can see something in his play that says he has got what it takes. Good luck Sonny.

How confident did this kid look!? Was an absolute joy to watch. :newthumb: And that was probably the best debut from a youngster I’ve seen since Johnson’s at Man City.

Made his debut tonight, congrats Sonny, he has scored 5 goals in 8 games in PL2 this season.

Carlton Cole on Sonny Perkins: "I know him well. He's always upbeat, always asking questions. No-one knew where his best position was. We were all scratching our heads. Played him everywhere. The only place we didn't play him was up front!"

Declan Rice
The debutant Buzzing for you brother @sonnyperkins future is bright

Sonny Perkins (17y & 288d) is the second youngest player to make an appearance for West Ham in major European competition after Bobby Barnes (17y & 275d) against Real Madrid Castilla in the Cup Winners' Cup back in September 1980. Baptism

Had to take the kids to bed as my wife's out... Looked the game up on the BBC website and saw Perkins was MOTM!

Didn't see a bit of his debut so will have to track it down on BT some time. Ugh.
