Aston Villa: Fans react to Tyrone Mings’ debut admission

Aston Villa: Fans react to Tyrone Mings’ debut admission - Aston Villa

Tyrone Mings has discussed what was meant to be his first team debut with Ipswich Town against Aston Villa in the FA Cup in 2013, revealing that he had to inform his manager he was cup tied.

The England international started his career with non-league side Yate Town, before a spell with Chippenham Town led him to be signed by Ipswich.

Moving to the Suffolk based club after a short trial, Mings would arrive and look to make his first team debut.

The defender was selected for his new club’s FA Cup third round tie against Aston Villa by manager Mick McCarthy, but was forced to inform the former Republic of Ireland boss that he had already played in the competition with Yate Town against Winchester in the preliminary round.

Villa would go on to win 2-1 with goals from Darren Bent and Andreas Weimann sealing the Midlands club’s passage to the next round.

Mings, who now plays for Villa, sealing a £22m move from Bournemouth last summer, was forced to make his debut five months later, playing against Burnley at Turf Moor in 2013.

Reacting to Mings’ story via the defender’s official Twitter account, fans replied…
