Sunderland AFC youngster Tom Robson described his Premier League debut as "unbelievable".

Flying High

The academy defender made his senior debut on the final day of last season when Sam Allardyce named a youthful side in the Black Cats eventual 2-2 draw with Watford.

Robson was one of three debutants at Vicarage Road along with Rees Greenwood and George Honeyman and Robson has been reliving the moment.

He told safc.com that "words cant even describe" the "unbelievable" experience and that he tried to "block out the crowd" as much as possible so he could "concentrate on the game" but admitted he couldn't do it as the Sunderland fans were "incredible".

Robson continued saying that he felt that he "might be involved" after being "named in the squad" after the "team were safe".

The youngster said that he couldn't take it in "at the time" and said that it was "even better" that his mam and dad were there but said he will have "work hard" over the summer to "impress" and is hopeful he can start pre-season as he "ended this one."

More opportunities

Greenwood was another youngster that was allowed an opportunity to show skills against the Hornets and he believed that Sunderland early survival hopes will be beneficial to his career.

He told The Chronicle that he is hopeful that the Black Cats would avoid relegation next season as it would be beneficial for the "younger lads" to have "more game-time" and if the side could start well at a "steady pace" they could "enjoy a good season" and is "ready to put the work in."

Greenwood continued saying that he is looking to "stay in and around the first-team picture" but admitted that the decision would be "not up" to him.
