Irish teenager scores first ever goal for Notts County, celebrates with Dad

Jack Grealish slalomed through the Gillingham defence to score before running to embrace his proud father.

IRELAND UNDER 21 midfielder Jack Grealish is making a name for himself after a loan move from Aston Villa to Notts County this season.

The 18-year-old, born in England but committed to the Irish cause, showed great skill and composure to slot in a superb goal in County’s 3-1 league win over Gillingham yesterday.

The moment was made all the more special when Grealish ran over to celebrate with his father in the stands. Check out the fan video here:
