Paul Dummett admits making his Newcastle United debut was a dream come true.
Dummett replaced James Perch for the second half of Saturday's match at Brighton but insists that even the pain of the cup upset could not take the shine off his big moment.
He said: "I was very proud. I'm a local boy and all local boys in Newcastle dream of playing for the club.
"It was a poor result for the team but inside I was buzzing for myself. It was a dream come true."
