‘Special night’ for Kyle

15 August 2018

KYLE Edwards was bursting with pride after making his Albion debut against Luton Town.

The 20-year-old was a half-time substitute at The Hawthorns in the Carabao Cup Round One tie, joining fellow Academy graduates Sam Field, Jonathan Leko and Rekeem Harper in the blue-and-white stripes.

For a boy who joined the Albion family at the age of six, it was a "special night".

"It's good to get my first game," said Kyle.

"I've been around the First Team for a while now so it's a nice feeling.

"I've been here so many years and seen my friends come through and get their debuts.

"I'm really proud of myself for what I've achieved.

"It was a special night."

No wonder the Dudley-born forward was all smiles. He's had to do things the hard way.

Kyle added: "I've had a couple of injuries, one nine months and one four months.

"I've managed to come back each time so I'm happy.

"Last year's loan at Exeter helped me out a lot and I'm thankful to them.

"It was my first taste of real football.

"My target now is to force my way into the team.

"I'll keep showing what I can do from the bench. But ultimately I want to get that starting position."
