Albion battle away in Hastings
A young Brighton & Hove Albion side, predominantly made up of under-18s, came up against Bostik South East side Hastings United on Tuesday evening at The Pilot Field. Led by Mikey Harris and Mark Beard, the Seagulls took the lead through Lorent Tolaj after just two minutes, but the hosts hit back before the break, and Davide Rodari’s strike proved to be the final goal of the evening. Under-23 coach Simon Rusk joined Harris and Beard on the sideline, and the trio were able to cast their eyes over the promising talent in Albion’s academy, as they continued their preparations for the upcoming season. Kieran Cleeves captured the action from behind the lens at The Pilot Field.
