David Button made an impressive start to his loan spell with Grays Athletic in the Blue Square Premier (Conference) on Saturday.
The young goalkeeper made a number of fine saves as the Essex side beat Wrexham 2-1 at the New Rec.
Academy goalkeeping coach Perry Suckling watched his debut and was pleased with what he saw. "It was a great start for David," he said.
"He made three or four outstanding saves, looked full of confidence and actually set up one of the goals with a 75-yard clearance upfield that the striker finished.
"Grays have a lot of games coming up and it's an ideal loan move for David because it's all about match experience for him.
"He has fantastic potential - that experience is all he needs."
David's next match for Grays will be live on television - their league clash against Stevenage Borough is on Setanta Sports on Thursday night, kick-off 7.45pm.
Meanwhile, David's fellow young goalkeeper Lee Butcher kicked-off his loan spell with a win and a clean sheet as Margate beat Ashford 1-0 in the Ryman League Premier Division.
