Taylor Richards has his sights set on breaking into Graham Potter's first team plans at Albion after scoring on his debut.

The 18-year-old attacking midfielder settled last night's friendly at Crawley with a late penalty, the day after signing from Manchester city.

Richards said: "That's the plan (first team), but it's what ever the manager and staff have in mind for me. Hopefully it gives a good impression, but there's still more to do, it's only the first game.

"I'm just happy the manager and staff put me into this game so early. I haven't really been training that much since I came here. It was a great opportunity for me and hopefully I think I took it."

Richards cheekily chipped the 84th minute penalty straight down the middle after ref Gavin Ward spotted a handling defence in the Crawley wall from a Max Sanders free-kick.

The Argus: Richards said: "I wanted the free-kick before it as well, then the penalty I definitely wanted it. I took a long run up so he (keeper) thought I was going to smash it.

"It's just a dream come true, the fans singing your name. It's never happened to me before. It was a great moment for me."
