Tottenham Hotspur teenager Kyle Walker-Peters has expressed his excitement at being given the opportunity to sit alongside his senior team-mates and witness his team in action against Bournemouth this weekend.

The 18-year-old was named as a substitute for the match against Eddie Howe's side and though he failed to make it to the pitch, the experience in itself wasn't disappointing, according to the young right-back.

As a matter of fact, Walker-Peters is overwhelmed at having been given the opportunity and reveals that it was a learning experience for him to have watched his seniors from the sidelines for the first time.

Having been involved in a 3-0 win over Leicester City in the Under-21 Premier League at the King Power Stadium less than 48 hours prior to the Bournemouth match, the youngster insists that the feeling was one of thrill and he will only benefit from that experience in the near future.

“I knew on Saturday that I would be coming to the game but I found out I was on the bench when I got to the ground”, Walker-Peters told his club's official website.  


“My reaction was obviously excitement and I guess a bit of nerves too, but I was very pleased to be involved for the first time.

"The players were outstanding in the game – it was a great experience for me to see them from a different angle.

"Obviously I was in the changing rooms and I saw what the character of the players is like on a matchday which can only benefit me going forward."
