LUKE Thomas made his first ap­pear­ance for Eng­land Un­der-20s in their goal­less draw with the Nether­lands on Thurs­day night.

The for­mer Chel­tenham Town young­ster, who joined Barns­ley from Derby County this sum­mer, went on from the bench with 20 min­utes left at Shrews­bury Town’s Mont­gomery Wa­ters Meadow.

Thomas’ move to Oak­well net­ted the Robins a six-fig­ure sum, but his in­ter­na­tional de­but will not re­sult in any fur­ther pay­ment for his old club.

Chel­tenham do stand to re­ceive cash if he makes it into the Un­der-21 side.

Thomas made one se­nior ap­pear­ance in the FA Tro­phy for the Robins in Jan­uary 2016 be­fore leav­ing to join Derby.

He has since played on loan for Gloucester City and Coventry City, but is now a Cham­pi­onship reg­u­lar for the Tykes.

Thomas then started in the 1-0 win over Switzer­land on Mon­day.
