Billy Gilmour says he was not shy ahead of the full debut against Grimsby.
Billy Gilmour starred for Chelsea on his full debut against Grimsby, with the 18-year-old eager to point out that he does not suffer with nerves or shyness.
He proved as much with his performance in a Carabao Cup third-round clash that the Blues secured a stunning 7-1 success in.
Gilmour pulled the strings for Frank Lampard’s side in the middle of the park, with his first start at senior level seeing him put in an eye-catching display.
The talented teenager had already been handed his competitive bow in a Premier League meeting with Sheffield United and is taking a meteoric rise to prominence in his stride.
He puts that down to his roots, telling Chelsea’sofficial website of his ability to slip seamlessly into a star-studded squad: “I’m Scottish!
“No, I’m not shy. On the pitch it’s football. If you’re not going to talk, what are you doing on the pitch? You need to communicate. I love football, a big part of my game is communicating.
“I’m just taking it a step at a time. I’ve got the 23s, we’re doing really well there. Of course, I want to get as many opportunities with the first team as possible. I just need to keep training hard and working hard.”
