Luton Town midfielder Jordan Clark is full of pride making his Premier League debut.
Clark was a second-half substitute in Saturday’s defeat at Manchester United.
Clark said: “It’s been some journey, I always dreamed it though.
“You have little doubts when you slip into the lower leagues I must admit, but then you start ticking boxes, League Two to League One and then the same when you get to the Championship.
“Then when you get to the Championship, it’s like why not?
“So you’re just going to keep aiming for the next one, it was always my aim.
“It was a great feeling, it’s even better as this was always the planned date.
“So it just shows all the work me and the physios, especially they have done, and the sports science guys towards the back end of my rehab, it’s all materialised.
“The plan set out has worked, so I’m really happy.
“There’s not many better places to make your Premier League debut, so I’m over the moon, apart from the result which is the disappointing thing.”
He also told Luton Today: “I went on loan to Hyde from Barnsley, 10 years ago, then I was at Accrington for four years, so it’s been some journey.
“You’ve done the hard yards in non-league and then gone through League Two, League One and the Championship, so it’s a crazy journey.
“You’ve just got to enjoy every minute of it really and not let it pass you by.”
