Cambridge United’s official Twitter account raved about Tottenham Hotspur youngster Jack Roles’s display on his debut last night.
Roles’s departure was from Tottenham was only announced yesterday afternoon, but by the evening he was starting in Cambridge’s midfield.
Former Spurs player Colin Calderwood, who is now Cambridge manager, was keen to throw the prospect in at the deep end.
And Roles definitely swam, as the Tottenham loanee helped Cambridge to a 3-2 win over Scunthorpe United.
Roles looked assured in the U’s midfield, and Cambridge were quick to message Tottenham after the game.

Roles impressed at Tottenham over pre-season, and Mauricio Pochettino still appears to have high hopes.
Pochettino was seen nodding in reaction to Roles stepping up and taking a penalty in the Audi Cup final, which he duly converted against Bayern Munich.
Cambridge are next in action against Oldham Athletic, when Roles looks set to start again.
