Nottingham Forest youngster starlet was the man of the moment last night in the 2-0 EFL Trophy victory

Last night, Nottingham Forest’s rising star, Ben Perry, stole the spotlight in the 2-0 EFL Trophy victory. The Reds’ Under-21s emerged victorious against Carlisle and, with a win over Accrington, can advance to the knockout stages.

Operating in the central midfield under Warren Joyce’s guidance, Perry lived up to expectations. He displayed his skills against more experienced players with a classy performance and a neatly executed goal. Remarkably, Perry just celebrated his 19th birthday, making this a memorable pre-birthday performance. Throughout the year, Perry has been diligently working to secure his spot in the team, and this outstanding display will undoubtedly bolster his position.

Perry’s remarkable performance in the Forest U21 win
Despite being a young talent in the Forest academy, Perry had the opportunity to face seasoned League One footballers on the field last night. Carlisle, who earned promotion to the third tier last season, provided a challenging opposition. Notably, Forest’s academy prospect, Fin Back, is currently on loan with the club for a second time and was not part of the action on this occasion.

In all likelihood, Back observed from the stands as he witnessed some of his former teammates shine on his loan club’s turf. Perry’s goal was nothing short of spectacular and garnered significant attention on social media.

Perry put the finishing touch on a remarkable play by Forest’s young talents
The gifted teenager executed his goal with finesse. Considering he has only made two appearances in the Premier League 2 campaign this season, his performance showcased his sharpness. His goal involved an unstoppable strike into the top of the net, following some brilliant teamwork from Josh Powell, Jack Perkins, and Ateef Konate.

Perry is now poised to build on this outstanding performance against professional footballers. He undoubtedly aspires to replicate such feats regularly and, if he does, he may very well find himself as a senior player for Nottingham Forest in the future.
