For Teyah Goldie, this moment has been a long time coming.
Our academy graduate marked a decade at the club with her first senior start in front of thousands of fans at the Emirates on Sunday.
And what's more? We celebrated the occasion with a win, too!
"It's unbelievable," she told Arsenal Media. "I think it's been a long time coming for me because I've been at this club for 10 years now. To play in front of these fans, some fans for the first time in a while, and to get my first start is unbelievable.
"I think when you're walking out with your jacket on, onto the pitch, among some of the world's best players, and you're in this incredible stadium... that's when it hit me.
"The girls are always really supportive and are always speaking to me, helping me through the game," Goldie added. "The game plan was to keep going, to be persistent, and I think we did that.
"I just want to keep building and building on what I've done so far. It's things like this that are going to help me."
