West Bromwich Albion midfielder Isaiah Brown was delighted with his first senior call up for the defeat at Chelsea.

The young midfielder, better known as Izzy, was an unused substitute in Saturday’s 1-0 top-flight defeat at Chelsea.

"The experience was amazing,” said Brown to the WBA website. “The boys helped me fit in well and it was great going to a stadium like Stamford Bridge.

“I found out first from Twitter I was travelling. It happened so quickly and Steve Clarke grabbed me and told me I was involved - and I have to thank him for giving me this experience.

“My mum was over the moon, she shed a few tears, and my friends have just been buzzing about it. I did get a few butterflies when I saw my shirt hanging up - it’s something special.

“Getting a first-team shirt and squad number is what every boy dreams of.

“When I warmed up the fans sang a little song, it was a good reaction – and I wasn’t expecting it at all.”
