Sid Nelson: Boyhood dream fulfilled

29 December 2014

Proudest moment shared by his nearest and dearest

Rookie defender Sid Nelson only discovered he would be making his senior Lions debut 90 minutes before kick-off time on Sunday.

Fortunately, his family are all diehard Lions fans like himself and were coming to the Bournemouth game anyway as they do each week, so there was no danger of them missing Sid's big day.

He said: "It was a very emotional day for me, to finally play for the team I have supported growing up. I signed as an eight-year-old, and it was always my dream to play for the first team.

"The fact that I was up against (£3m Championship top scorer) Callum Wilson and did OK certainly gives me hope going into any game from now on."

A full interview with Sid Nelson is available to view on Lions Player.
