Luke O’Nien made his Wealdstone debut last night, just hours after playing the full 90 minutes for Sheffield United Under-21s.
The young midfielder was brought on in the final minutes of the Stones’ 2-0 win against Billericay Town but had earlier in the day played the whole match for the Blades in their 2-1 victory against Coventry City Under-21s.

O’Nien, whose current deal with the Hornets expires in the summer, made his Watford debut as an 88th-minute substitute against Barnsley on March 15.
