BUCKMAN READY FOR SHOREHAM TEST

25 July 2015



Brighton & Hove Albion under-18 coach Ian Buckman is relishing the prospect of his side taking on Shoreham at Middle Road today, 3pm kick-off.

The game follows an impressive run of pre-season results for the squad, including a 4-1 win over Millwall, along with 2-1 and 4-2 victories against Tondela and Braga respectively during a tour of Portugal.

Buckman believes the latest task of facing a senior men’s team will be highly beneficial for his squad, as they step up their preparations for the new Barclays Premier League Under-18 South season.

He told seagulls.co.uk, “We’re looking forward to it; it’s a good fixture and a good test for the boys.

“It’s a different experience for them in terms of what we’ve had so far over pre-season and we don’t play these type of games very often.

“The Shoreham players will have a lot more experience and knowledge about the game, so the lads will have to be clever and think about how they can best use the ball on Saturday.

“It’s a great opportunity for us to see something new and for the players to show additional capabilities that we’ve not seen so far.”
