By Eoin Harrington

Dubliner Tayo Adaramola made his first start for Crystal Palace on Tuesday night.

The 18-year-old left-back played 65 minutes of Palace's FA Cup tie against Stoke City, and the club's fans were full of praise for the youngster on Twitter.

Tayo Adaramola: Crystal Palace fans liked what they saw during Dubliner's first start

Ardent Irish football fans will have been keeping a close eye on Tayo Adaramola for quite some time. The exciting young left-back has shown several flashes of brilliance when given the chance for Crystal Palace's youth teams this year, including in the PL2.

Just last month, he made his debut for the senior side in their FA Cup fourth round win over Hartlepool, as a late substitute for Joel Ward.

On Tuesday night, Palace manager Patrick Vieira gave Adaramola his first start in the blue and red as a senior player, and he certainly lived up to the hype.

Adaramola's stats were impressive, as the Palace defence limited Stoke to just one shot on target during the Irishman's time on the pitch. He also maintained an excellent pass completion rate.

Judging by the reactions of Palace fans on Twitter during and after the game, it's not just the Irish contingent who are excited about Adaramola's future prospect.

With Palace's defence ageing, Adaramola presents a huge hope for the future, and the club's fans were impressed with what they saw against Stoke on Tuesday night.

Tayo Adaramola was ultimately withdrawn just after the hour mark and replaced by Jeffrey Schlupp, to a huge round of applause from the home fans at Selhurst Park.

Palace would go on to win the game 2-1, thanks to a late winner from Jairo Riedewald, putting them in the draw for the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Tayo Adaramola was not only given a huge opportunity on Tuesday night, but grasped it with both hands. Irish fans will be hoping he will get another chance to impress in the quarter-finals.

Regardless, his future in the game seems bright and, with Ireland also on the lookout for a long-term left-back option, he will surely be catching Stephen Kenny's eye.
