After being named Brentford B Player of the Season on Wednesday, Nathan Young-Coombes has now been presented with a Premier League debut ball to celebrate making his bow in the top flight of English football earlier this month against Southampton.
The Bees were 3-0 up at Brentford Community Stadium against The Saints, and Nathan who has scored 34 goals this season, was given the chance to turn out in the Premier League for the Club. The 19-year-old joined the B Team from Rangers in the summer of 2021 having also been part of the youth setups at Crystal Palace and Chelsea. Nathan entered the field on 87 minutes and helped the side see out the game and collect all three points.
The forward has been prolific for the B Team this season having featured for them throughout the campaign and netting against the likes of Brøndby IF and AS Monaco, as well as in the Final of the Middlesex Senior Challenge Cup as he struck from range to score against Barnet.
Nathan is now the ninth player to be pictured with their match ball this season, following David Raya, Rico Henry, Ethan Pinnock, Marcus Forss, Shandon Baptiste, Mads Bech, Charlie Goode and fellow B Team player Fin Stevens.
A Debut Ball, housed in a personalised, engraved case, is given to all homegrown debutants who have been developed at an Academy of a club in the English football pyramid for three years or more prior to their 21st birthday.
