Jake on Wales, Derby and moreJake Taylor has spoken with pride about his international debut this week, after becoming the latest Academy graduate to represent his country at senior level.
The 22-year-old was a late substitute in Wales' 2-1 win over Cyprus and told BBC Radio Berkshire that he is loving every minute of football this season - even the increasingly wet and windy training sessions at Hogwood Park!
"It was a very proud moment, I think it is something I will never forget," said Taylor. "It was a nice moment for my family there watching as well. To get a win was even better. Football is something I love doing, I go to work to play football and if you don't get excited about that then you're in the wrong sport. I go to training excited every day!"
At club level Jake can certainly consider 2014/15 to be his breakthrough season, with three goals in 14 appearances to his name already.
"It has been a nice start for me and something I've wanted to do for a while now. Playing a few games and scoring a couple of goals is good but this is just the start. I want to continue it for the rest of the season and beyond. This Saturday is a big game. Derby are a good side and if you finish around them this year then you're going to be up there; it's an important match and hopefully we can get a result out of it."
