Brighton & Hove Albion’s under-18s remain in second place in the Group Three Table, after a 3-3 draw against Swansea at the American Express Elite Performance Centre in their penultimate game of the season.

Goals from Reece Meekums, Isaac Hutchinson and James Tilley, looked to be enough to seal a 3-2 victory for the Albion, but a last-gasp Liam Cullen goal earned Swansea a share of the spoils.

Ian Buckman’s side took the lead early on, after Meekums found the back of the net with 15 minutes played.

That lead was doubled before half time in some style. A team move that started all the way back with Albion’s keeper was eventually finished off by Hutchinson, who despatched his shot into the top right corner.

But the Swans overturned the 2-0 deficit, as goals from Liam Cullen and Causso Darame levelled the score at 2-2.

Albion retook the lead in the 74th minute, through good build-up play once again. Hutchinson turned provider this time and delivered a great low, driven cross, which was tapped in at the far post by Tilley.

Max Sanders had a chance to extend the lead late on, but his header from a free-kick went just over the bar.

The visitors claimed a point with just seconds remaining, as Cullen, headed in his second goal of the day to ensure that Swansea would remain at the top of Group Three League table and the Albion would drop back into second place.

ALBION: Vose; Davies, White, O’Sulivan, Cox; Tilley, Barker, Sanders; Meekums (Byrne 72), Hutchinson, Garcia (Ajiboye 58).

SUBS NOT USED: Hobbs (GK), Golan, Mandriou.
