Arsenal reserves coach Terry Burton is delighted for Jack Wilshere after he took his "first step" towards a first-team return.
The 20-year-old has struggled with an ankle injury suffered prior to last season but stepped up his comeback by playing 63 minutes of the Gunners' under-21 game at West Brom.
Wilshere came through the match unscathed and Burton was pleased with the midfielder's performance.
"It's like all players when they come back for their first game: they realise how difficult and tough it is," he told the club's official website, www.arsenal.com.
"You always have to make that first step, and he has done that and that is fantastic.
"He is a quality player, it is great for the club that he has taken that first step on the road towards getting back into the first team. I think he is delighted to have been back on the pitch, as we all are."
