Bournemouth manager Lee Bradbury has revealed his delight with Josh Carmichael's Cherries debut at Exeter on Saturday.
The 16-year-old, a product of the club's youth development programme, replaced Nathan Byrne three minutes before half time in their 2-0 win.
And Bradbury was impressed with how Carmichael slotted into the senior side almost seamlessly.
"Josh got his chance and grabbed it with both hands. I was very pleased with him," he told the Bournemouth Echo.
"He has joined us in training a few times and has impressed me with his attitude and how he handles the ball so I thought it would be good opportunity to get him involved.
"I knew he would be good enough to do a job and he did fantastically well. He is big enough to be able to deal with first-team football and he showed that with an excellent performance."
