Reading defender Nesta Guinness-Walker made his first team debut on Saturday in the opening day defeat to Blackpool.

Playing the full 90 minutes at Bloomfield Road, it was the former AFC Wimbledon star's first match at second tier level, having made a name for himself in the non-league pyramid.

Speaking to the media in the days after his first run-out, here is what you can expect from the youngster.

"I’m an attacking left-back," he explained. "Who likes to get forward and get the fans on the edge of their seats. Defensive duties come first so that’s big as well, I just want to add to the team and see what I can do to showcase that."

Breaking through with Metropolitan Police in 2018, the 22-year-old has been playing regularly since the age of 18.

Almost 100 appearances at third tier level preceeded his step up to the Championship, somthing which he believes will give him a good grounding to push from.

Reading Chronicle:

"Playing men’s football from 18, now I’m 22, I’ve got a good foundation and now I’m stepping into this environment where it’s going to be test for me but I’m looking to relish that.

"I’m eager to learn and eager to improve. I’m really excited to see how far I can develop and hopefully mould into the team well."
