With Boro’ up against it with injuries and international call-ups, Mackye Townsend-West took his first step up from the U18s in November 2019. The young defender got a spot on the bench for our FA Cup First Round replay at Peterborough United. While he didn’t see any action in that game, the fact he was there shows that gaffer (at the time) Mark Sampson saw something in him. And that something meant he deserved to be there. Time was still very much on his side too; the path to the first team still open as he continued to develop. And we are keen to see how that goes; looking forward to the lad’s next chance to shine.
Debut: vs. MK Dons (H, 2-3), 06/10/2020
