Eight-year-old Young Seagulls member Jake Beagley will be representing the Albion at Wembley Stadium later today, when he walks out onto the famous turf as an official Player Escort ahead of the FA Cup semi-final clash.

Beagley won the competition which included over 8,000 Young Seagulls members between the ages of 7 and 11 and as a result will cherish this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, to walk out in front of a packed Wembley crowd.

The South Stand season ticket holder said, “I was shocked to hear about the amazing prize. There are so many Young Seagulls members to choose from so I feel very lucky and now I am really looking forward to such an amazing day at Wembley Stadium.

“I will be walking out with a Sheffield United player and I can’t wait; it’s going to be such an exciting FA Cup Semi Final! Hopefully Brighton will be at Wembley soon.”

Beagley was offered the prize as part of a FA initiative, after Albion reached the fifth round of this season’s prestigious competition. He will also get to watch the game alongside his mother, Louise Acton.

Louise added, “I couldn’t believe Jake’s luck! I am a big Albion fan and as a PE Teacher, I also have a big interest in football. I will be sharing the day with Jake and I am so excited for him! It really is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

“Thank you so much to the FA and to Brighton & Hove Albion. This will be a day we will never forget!”
