Academy product Lloyd Kelly is taking his recent success in his stride after captaining England Under-20s team and becoming a first team regular.
Kelly, the youngest player in the squad at 20 years of age, has made 13 appearances this season, netting once.
Just a year after making his debut in December 2017, the Bristol-born defender is a consistent starter for Lee Johnson's side and his continued success saw him train with the senior England squad in the most recent international break.
“I’ve really enjoyed the season, starting every week gets my momentum going in terms of games,” Kelly told bcfc.co.uk.
“It is especially good, being born in Bristol, to come through the ranks through different managers and break into the first team. This season I think I have cemented my place a bit more”.
Kelly, who wore the armband for the Young Lions, leading them to a 2-1 win against Italy and a 1-1 draw with the Czech Republic, added: “The way we play at England and the way we play at Bristol City are obviously different in some styles but the principles are always the same when attacking and defending. I think it’s quite similar but it is always good to captain a team, especially at international level."
Kelly plays as a left-back but has also switched into central defence comfortably after playing there on international duty.
He continued: “I feel quite comfortable playing both. Obviously playing centre-defence in the Championship is quite different to playing centre-back against players that are my age for England, but you just pick up different things as you go along, so it was good.”
