Coventry City forward George Thomas was pleased to get back out onto the pitch for the Under-21s side yesterday.
Thomas scored in the 2-1 win at the City Ground in his first start for the Under-21s side this season.
The Wales Under-19 international has been on the cusp of the first-team of late, being on the bench for every game this campaign, coming off the bench against Wigan and Milwall as well as Rochdale in the cup, where he got the assist for Marcus Tudgay’s late equaliser.
The youngster was delighted to get some minutes under his belt and believes that yesterday’s victory over Forest yesterday proves how far the young players have come.
“It was really good yesterday I really enjoyed it,” Thomas said.
“It was a good Forest side with some experienced lads in there. We weren’t fazed by that at all and we passed the ball really well, it was a great day. We lost against this team last year so I really think it shows how far we’ve come, particularly against the side who won the 21s league last season.
“I’m on the fringes of the first-team at the moment and I just really want to be involved. I’m on the bench and that means I’ve missed some 21 games but I’ve really enjoyed it. I was worried about my fitness because I hadn’t played in a while but I felt fine.
“This time last year I’d played so many games in the 18s and 21s already, so it’s good to take a step back! I just want to keep playing and keep trying to impress.”
