GARY OWEN TALKS ABOUT HIS DEBUT
I’d been on the bench for the FA Cup tie with Hartlepool when we beat them 6-0, but not used. …Then Alan Oakes was injured and so the day before the Wolves game I was toId l was going to make my debut. That night I could hardly sleep and on the morning of the game I remember having bacon, egg and toast. I had a full fry- up! This was before nutritionists and so on and I thought it was the best thing to have. I thought I had to build myself up. I was full of nervous energy as well. I would have loved  to have kicked off at 8am because I was ready, I couIdn’t wait.
I got into the changing room. Changed faster than anybody else. As soon as the opportunity came to get out on the pitch I was out there. I wanted to savour every moment of it and take it all in. Back inside we had the team-talk and Tony Book told me what my role was and that but, I have to tell you Gary, once I waIked out on to that pitch I had nothing in my mind apart from getting every ball. I wanted the ball all the time and I chased, and pushed for it. We won my debut game 3-2…
