ACADEMY graduate and Swindon match-winner Sol Pryce insists he won’t get carried away by his two goals scored against Stevenage on Tuesday night, which helped Town record their first back-to-back League Two victories of the season.

Pryce netted 18 seconds into Town’s latest league fixture when a ball from Steven Alzate on the right met the 18-year-old in front of goal, making for a simple six-yard tap in.

His first goal in a Town shirt proved no fluke when he readily cleared his marker following an accurate through ball delivered by Michael Doughty before slotting past Stevenage goalkeeper Seny Dieng in a one-on-one.

Pryce’s second goal re-established Town’s two-goal lead after Scott Cuthbert pulled a goal back on 14 minutes after Scott Twine scored Swindon’s second with just six minutes played.

Understandably delighted with his performance, Pryce – who was substituted with 80 minutes played – vowed to remain grounded despite his remarkable performance on league debut.

He said: “I’m happy Richie Wellens included me on Tuesday, hopefully I’ve justified my position.

“I’m going to keep my head down and continue training, I won’t get big headed obviously. I’ll go back to work as normal and keep training how I have been.

“I was on the bench (after I was substituted) thinking we need three points, we’ve done that and I’m delighted.

“I’ve played football as long as I could walk – I got into the academy when I was 15, went through the process and now I’m here.

“I’m grateful to my family and coaches who have helped me get to where I am today.

“It’s nice to be in the history, back to back wins is very important – hopefully we can carry that into the FA Cup on Sunday.”

With a FA CUP second round tie against non-league Woking on Sunday at home, Pryce will be hopeful of retaining his starting position.

The change in management coupled with Swindon’s injury and suspension woes moving forward certainly helped the Chippenham-born teenager muscle his way into the first team.

With Marc Richards, Elijah Adebayo and Kaiyne Woolery all set to return in the coming weeks, Pryce understands working hard on the training ground is his only option if he is to retain his starting spot.

He said: “I’ve had to be patient – I came on against Chelsea (in the Checkatrade Trophy) to try and get into the team.

“We were losing games though, and the manager had to choose reliable and experienced players at that time.”
