West Ham United youngster Lewis Page made his comeback for the under-21 side in last night's narrow loss to Aston Villa.
Page, 19, featured in the Europa League preliminary rounds earlier in the season, but has yet to make his Premier League debut.
He was a regular for the under-21s in the first half of the season when he was fit, before being sent out on loan to Cambridge United.
He started well for the League Two side, starting six consecutive games at left-back and lasting 90 minutes in each one, only for his run in the team to be halted by injury.
Last night's game against Aston Villa saw him return to action, named in the starting line up. Page featured for 45 minutes, and he was withdrawn with the score at 1-1.
West Ham went onto lose the game 3-2, with Aston Villa's youngsters showing more togetherness than their first team have done in recent months.
Page was happy on a personal level despite the result, sending a message on Twitter expressing his feelings.
Buzzing to be back out there tonight and get a good 45mins under my belt! Shame about the result but we will be back at it for the final!— Lewis Page (@LewisPage3) April 11, 2016
He is now hoping to make an impact if selected in the upcoming Premier League under-21 Cup Final against Hull City, which takes place over two legs home and away in late April and early May.
