Young winger Will Ferry enjoyed his chance to shine on the big stage this evening, as he marked his St Mary's bow with a goal scoring performance in Saints' FA Youth Cup victory over Rotherham.

He was made to wait for it, patiently finding the net in the 90th minute - doubling the hosts' lead and making the win safe, after Christian Norton had hit a first-half opener.

It was the teenager's fifth of the season, and as well as praising the efforts of his teammates, was pleased to contribute more than just a solid performance.

"As always, we're pleased with a win," the youngster began. "We probably didn't play as well as we'd have liked, but what's important is we got the win.

"We stuck together as a team, and it's always a good sign if you aren't at your best, yet you still manage to win.

"I was getting more and more frustrated as the game went on, because I had a few chances to score.

"It was a relief when I saw it hit the back of the net. I set myself targets, and I'm always working towards hitting them. I feel like my confidence is rising and I want to push on from this.

"Hopefully I came across as calm. I was very nervous before the game, but once you get on the pitch the nerves disappear and you just do what comes natural to you.

"We'd like to draw a big team in the next round, for a challenge. When there's a big game, everyone looks forward to it and you've got to be at your best."
