Isaiah Brown joined the Albion Academy three years ago from Histon.
Izzy - as he is better know - made a rapid rise through the ranks and has already become a regular in the Under-21s' side.
His progress did not go unnoticed by head coach Steve Clarke, who fast-tracked him into the first-team squad in the week building up to Albion's top-flight trip to Chelsea.
The attacking midfielder was an unused substitute at Stamford Bridge - but would have been the youngest-ever Barclays Premier League player, at 16 years and 54 days, had he come on.
He has also been capped by England at Under-16s and Under-17s level and scored his first goal in the Under-16s' 4-3 friendly defeat by Germany in February 2013.
