The Reds’ U18 skipper was an unused substitute during last weekend’s 5-0 demolition of Birmingham City at Anfield, his first appearance in a matchday squad at Anfield.
And the 18-year-old says the experience has only made him even more hungry to push himself into manager Kenny Dalglish’s thoughts on a more regular basis.
“It was an incredible experience,” said Coady.
“I only found out about it two hours before kick off and I was buzzing all the way through the pre-match warm-up.
“It’s every young lad’s dream to be stretching in front of the Kop. I can’t put into words how I was feeling as I ran up the touchline. You could hear the fans clapping and shouting words of encouragement. That was just incredible.
“I’d have loved to have got on in the last few minutes but it wasn’t to be. I’ve just got to keep working hard and try to impress so I get another chance in the future.”
Coady believes seeing the likes of Flanagan and Robinson, as well as the impressive Jay Spearing and Martin Kelly, performing so well for the senior side is an inspiration to other young players at the club.
“I know it’s been said over and over again but Kenny Dalglish has lifted the club so much,” he said. “He’s got us all pulling in the same direction and the academy lads now feel like he will give them a chance.
“You only have to look at what John Flanagan and Jack Robinson have done in recent weeks. If you are good enough, you are old enough and that’s really positive for anyone looking to make the grade.”
