Young Mills Makes Tigers Debut

Hull City apprentice Jevon Mills made his first-team debut on Wednesday evening, as The Tigers held onto three valuable points at Cardiff City.

As the tightly contested Championship clash entered the closing stages, Hull City boss Grant McCann brought on young Mills to help his side hold onto a clean sheet and three much-needed points. The defender replaced George Honeyman with 93 minutes on the clock to make his senior bow, topping off a memorable month for the youngster, who made it into November’s edition of ‘The 11’ and gained international recognition with Republic of Ireland Under-19’s.

Jevon went on to captain his country in just his second international appearance against Sweden, and, alongside that, has managed to dedicate time towards maintaining a high-quality portfolio of work for the SEP programme.

Speaking to LFE about Jevon’s progression earlier this month, Head of Education Dean Jennings said: “If you were to know Jevon like we do here at the Academy, you wouldn’t know that he was preforming so well as a promising young centre back, as he is so grounded and humble.

Whenever he puts on a shirt for this club, whether that’s with the Under-18’s, Under-23’s, or up with the first team, he gives it his all.

The most noticeable thing with Jevon is that he religiously analyses his performances and is always striving to improve his game. This could be just watching back his own clips or absorbing feedback from his peers and coaches. This demonstrates his personality and leadership qualities.”

Mills will now be looking for more first-team opportunities at the MKM Stadium, while maintaining the high standard he has set in the classroom.
