Winger Signs New Deal

By James Hilsum • 05 July 2019

Brighton & Hove Albion under-23 winger Ryan Longman has signed a new one-year contract, which extends his stay at the club until July 2020.

The 18-year-old has progressed up to the under-23 squad this season after an impressive campaign with the under-18s in 2018/19, where he scored 11 goals in 31 league appearances.

Under-23 coach Simon Rusk said, “Ryan has worked very hard during his time at the club, and we have been very impressed with his recent development.

“He put in a number of good performances for the under-18s last season, and I am looking forward to seeing how he progresses with us in the under-23s set-up.

“This new contract is a reward for all of his hard work, and hopefully he can continue to push on and develop even more.”

Longman was called up to the under-23 squad on a number of occasions last season, and made nine Premier League 2 Division 1 appearances, scoring once in a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on the final day of the season.

He also featured three times in the FA Youth Cup, and found the net in a memorable 3-1 win over Manchester United in a fourth round tie.
