Oh Captain, My Captain: Terry’s 10 Year Anniversary
On this day, ten years ago, John Terry made his first team appearance for Chelsea in a Worthington Cup, third round tie with Aston Villa. The 17-year-old was put on after the club went up 4-1 with a hat trick from player/manager Gianluca Vialli and a goal from Flo. The young player impressed in his debut and came on again on Boxing Day against Southampton and made his full debut on the 2nd day of the New Year.
This was the beginning of the career of the most successful captain in the club’s history.
