Terry Antonis made his Hyundai A-League debut in Sydney FC-s clash with the Wellington Phoenix last Saturday night, making him the Sky Blues youngest ever player.

At just 16 years of age, Antonis is both an outstanding young man but a prodigiously talented star in the making.

We caught up with Terry after his first away trip and asked him a few questions about the experience and how it feels to be the youngest ever player to don the Sky Blue.

SFC: Congratulations on making your Sydney FC debut, how did it feel to play in your first A-League game?

TA: It was a great experience, just being on the field with all those players and playing my first game with Sydney FC. It was a dream come true.

SFC: Tell us what it was like out there in the 10 or so minutes you were on? Was it everything you expected?

TA: Yeah, all those hard practice sessions to get those ten minutes were worth it. So it was great.

SFC: How did it feel to be surrounded by that many fans?

TA: Well it was a great feeling; it-s been my dream to play like that and in front of a lot of people. I really enjoyed everything about it.

SFC: When you came on, what were you trying to do out there?

TA: I was trying to create chances when I got out there and use my pace to help create any opportunities I could.

SFC: What was it like on your first away trip with Sydney FC? What did you get up to?

TA: We did a fair bit of hard training but otherwise we got to relax and that, to save us for the game on the weekend. We travelled on Thursday and had a light jog that afternoon before having a normal training session on Friday.

SFC: And how was the experience for you, traveling with the other players?

TA: It-s great because you pick up stuff that the older players do and you learn so it-s good.

SFC: Being the youngest player in Sydney FC-s first team is pretty special, are you enjoying being a professional footballer?

TA: Of course. Since I was small I wanted to do this. So it is everything to me.

SFC: What are your goals for the rest of the season?

TA: I want to get a couple of starts and score a couple of goals as well.
