Made his Premier League debut for Norwich over the weekend playing 45 min in their defeat to West Ham. 

English-born 19 year old winger who has played for us at u18 three years ago, but seems to have fallen off the radar with the disruption caused to fixtures by Covid. 

He has done very well at PL2/u23 lever this year, with 8 goals and 9 assists in 22 matches. 

With 3 more PL games for already-relegated Norwich, we might see him get more top-flight exposure, before what is hopefully a breakthrough year for him in the Championship next season. 

More on the lad here:

I see he's discussed in the underage prospects thread but probably deserves his own.
 
His club manager had this to say about his PL debut at the weekend: "I was really pleased with what Tony did. It's tough to come on when you're 3-0 down against West Ham. He is full of effort, endeavour and is skilful and talented. Hopefully that's a sign of things to come."

Yeah, if you make a premier league debut, you probably should get your own thread.

There'll always be surprise packages every season, such as ebosele, kilkenny or cashin.

I this this guy might have a good season next season.

He's probably got duel citizenship and he was born in London.

Tony would be a good one to spring from the bench but at his age it might be putting a lamb to the wolves

Played once for us several years ago in an U18 friendly, I believe. Is he definitely eligible or is there a possibility he could be ineligible, like Taylor Gardner-Hickman?

It's possible that he could be ineligible, playing Under 18s doesn't necessarily mean anything as it's a non-competitive age group.

Good shout but I guess if he has an Irish flag on his social media account he must be eligible in some way. Otherwise it'd be a strange thing to do.

He might have a chance to be included in the u21s soon, so I guess we'll seen then. 

But it is a shame that he's been overlooked for underage football, he looks to have some talent. Now with a premier league cap too.

It appears that you find it funny that someone can identify as both Irish and English. That seems narrow minded to me.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who finds it funny. A bit like that time Simon Cox pretended he gave a sh*te about his roots and had Galway listed on his Twitter profile (until he stopped getting call-ups).

Hope springs to mind eternal. Yesterday most of us didn't know of this kid's existence. However he regards his heritage we'll know by and by.

Narrow minded? I'm not sure how that conclusion has been reached? 

We have a thread dedicated to 'players eligible for ireland' with a fast approaching 400 pages... seeing a player with two or three odd flags on their social media has the 'considering my options' feel to it.

All part of being an ireland fan to question how committed some players appear to be.

The lad is seemingly eligible and hasn't ever played for the England underage set up. Again we can all see the barrier to entry that is getting into the England senior side long term especially in attacking positions 

Hopefully he's in the next 21s squad tbh if he makes a few PL appearances before the season runs out (can make 3 more) it would be silly not to bring him in even if he's making up the numbers of said squad. 

Smith seems to rate him could see him getting plenty gametime next year even if mostly off the bench.
