Last night was all about one man for Chelsea – Alfie Gilchrist. He finally made his debut for the club he’s played for and supported since boyhood, and whatever happens in the rest of his career, he’s already achieved something really special.
On Twitter, someone collated pictures from his time at the club, from signing his first deal through to now, a strapping 20 year old competing with hardened Championship veterans.
In ten years at the club he’s gone from boy to man, and from scholar to starter. Here’s to many more appearances this season and beyond.
