Owls full back Matt Young has plenty more to give following his professional debut, according to Carlisle boss Keith Curle.

Young joined the Cumbrians on a one month loan deal last week and played the full 90 minutes of their 1-0 defeat to Cambridge at Brunton Park.

Former Blade Curle was pleased with the contribution from Young, who has been on the bench for Wednesday several times this season.

“I think there’s more to come from Matt,” Curle said.

“He came in and slotted into the right back role really well.

“It’s very difficult for a young man to make his debut in these conditions but he integrated well into the squad.

“He has a fantastic pedigree.

“It was just a case of getting the timing right as to when we could get him here.

“He didn’t look out of place and that’s what you want from your first game.”

Young was delighted to make his senior bow.

He said: “For me personally, it was I day I won’t forget and I’m just gutted we couldn’t get a win to mark the day.”
