Sheffield United’s Jayden Bogle got himself on the scoresheet at Brighton today and, in the process, put himself in the Blades record books.
Bogle, making his first Premier League appearance of the season after replacing Rhian Brewster in the second half for the Blades, got himself a goal when he fired in from David McGoldrick’s pull-back to give United a lead.
Of course, Danny Welbeck struck late to halt United’s push for a first Premier League win of the season and leave Chris Wilder’s men firmly rooted to the bottom on two points.
But for Bogle, on a personal level anyway, there was cause for celebration.
Into the history books at Bramall Lane for Bogle
In scoring on his Premier League debut for United, Jayden Bogle became only the fifth player in Blades history to achieve such a feat.
Bogle follows in the footsteps of club legend Brian Deane, who scored the first ever Premier League goal and from 1993, Willie Falconer.
Into the modern era, and Rob Hulse got himself on the scoresheet with his headed effort against Liverpool back in 2006, while nobody can forget Billy Sharp’s last gasp equaliser at Bournemouth on the opening day of last season. (stats per Sky Sports)
Aside from his goal, Bogle also looked a real threat. He brought energy, pace, and freshness to a team desperately in need of it and Chris Wilder will have a big call to make on Bogle’s future place in the team in the coming weeks.
