TILLEY'S GOAL DELIGHT

11 July 2015



Brighton & Hove Albion youngster James Tilley has spoken of his delight at scoring in the club's 6-1 win over FC Meyrin in Geneva today.

The Billingshurst youngster netted in the second half, as Albion ended their tour of the Alps in some style in Geneva.

He told seagulls.co.uk, "I was really happy to score. I got the ball short; everyone was shouting at me to cross it, but it opened up for me and I just thought I'll have a shot.

"I found out last Friday that I was coming. When I heard I was really pleased, a bit surprised as I didn't expect to be involved with the first-team this season.

"I thought I would have to prove myself first, perhaps play with under-21s for a bit, and then see what happened."

Tilley, who was joined by fellow youngster Ben White and Jesse Starkey, says the more experienced players at the club helped the trio settle into the group with ease.

"All of the senior players have been very welcoming, passing on their experience, giving us little pointers and helping us to settle in.

"They've been great over the whole week. Now I have to knuckle down, keep working hard, play for the under-21s and go from there."
