IT WAS quite a mo­ment for Charlton Ath­letic third choice keeper Nick Pope af­ter he un­ex­pect­edly made his first team de­but against Bris­tol City on the last day of the sea­son.

Called into ac­tion for the last 19 min­utes af­ter in­juries to Ben Hamer and David But­ton, the 21-year-old keeper did not con­cede a goal in the Ad­dicks’ 4-1 vic­tory.

“It’s an un­be­liev­able feel­ing,” he said.“Two years ago I was play­ing in non-league not re­ally go­ing any­where in my football and ready to go to univer­sity.

“Now to come to this two years af­ter sign­ing. I’ve come so far. I was de­lighted to end the sea­son this way.”
