As debuts for clubs go, Liam Millar’s for Preston North End was pretty exceptional.

The Canadian winger, signed on loan from Swiss club Basel on transfer deadline day, started for Preston in their 2-1 win over Plymouth Argyle in the English Championship on Saturday and he redefined the term “instant impact.”

In the very first minute of his first appearance for the club, Millar created the home side’s opening goal, latching onto a cross-field pass and seeing his delivery turned in by Duane Holmes with less than 50 seconds on the clock.

Then, 24 minutes later, Millar got his own name on the scoresheet with a great solo goal, receiving a pass out wide and driving into the box before side-footing home what turned out to be the winner in an eventual 2-1 victory that sent the Lilywhites top of the table.

It was a scintillating start to life at Deepdale for the former Liverpool talent, and he cemented himself as a firm fan favourite at his new club on day one.

In fact, Preston’s fans simply couldn’t get enough of the 23-year-old Torontonian.

“Liam Millar with possibly the best North End debut I’ve ever seen,” wrote one fan on Twitter.

Here’s a snapshot of the adoration for the Canadia:

What a way to start.
