Paul Dummett made his debut for St. Mirren and helped them record their first home league win of the season - and keep a clean sheet to boot.
The 20-year-old started at left-back against Hearts on Saturday, taking the place of Gary Teale in the only change to the side which drew with Hearts two weeks ago, and slotted in perfectly as Jim Goodwin and ex-Magpie Lewis Guy got the goals for the Buddies.
Early on, Dummett made a crucial goal-line block to deny Callum Paterson with the goal at his mercy and was typically solid throughout the remainder of the match.
"I thought it was an absolutely fantastic debut for the young boy," Saints boss Danny Lennon told BBC Scotland. "Nothing seemed to faze him."
The Wales under-21 left-back joined the Scottish Premier League side at the end of last month and has made a couple of appearances for their under-20 side during the international break, scoring once.
He was loaned to Gateshead last season and helped them to a 2-0 win over Hayes and Yeading on his bow - their first shut-out in 12 games. The Heed went on to keep six clean sheets in the Newcastle youngster's ten appearances.
