Brighton & Hove Albion’s under-18s ended their Premier League South campaign with a 2-2 draw away at Swansea City on Saturday.
 
A late strike from Archie Davies earned the Seagulls a share of the spoils in South Wales, after Cameron Berry’s brace cancelled out Daniel Mandroiu’s opener.
 
Despite the hosts making the livelier start, it was Albion that took the lead in the 11th minute through Mandroiu, who latched onto Luis Garcia’s pass and fired home beyond the Swans goalkeeper.
 
Mael Davies almost found an equaliser for the Swans on the stroke of half -time, but was denied thanks to a fine save from Tom McGill.
