City academy graduate and One of Our Own Alfie Pond has given his reaction to the the Grecians' draw with Chelsea's under-21 side in the Papa John's Trophy.
Alfie was handed his firstteam debut for the match, and has said it was a proud moment for him.
"It was great to be out there tonight. As youngsters we always push to be better and push to be in that first team," he said.
"Chelsea were a really good side and I felt we matched them, but we do have to be better in certain positions.
"I had some of the older players talk me through things all night which was a massive help."
