02 Mar 2009 / News

Aymen Tahar, who was initially recommended to Sheffield United by FURD's coaches, made his first team debut for the Blades in their FA Cup fifth round replay at Hull on 26th February. 19 year old Aymen came on as a substitute for the last four minutes of the 2-1 defeat, replacing Lee Hendrie in the 90th minute. Kyle Walker also played the whole match, meaning for the first time there were two first team players flying the flag for FURD.

Aymen is an attacking midfielder who joined Sheffield United's Academy in 2005. He's also represented Algeria at under-20 level.
