George Cox and James Tilley have signed new contracts.

Brighton & Hove Albion under-23 defender George Cox and forward James Tilley have signed new contracts at the club.
Cox has been with Albion from under-11 level and has signed a new two-year contact, while Tilley progressed from the under-12 age group and has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal.
Under-23 coach Simon Rusk said,“I am delighted that both George and James have committed their immediate futures to the club.
“Both players have progressed well in recent years, and shown a tremendous desire to improve and make the next step up to first-team football.
“They are both local lads and it is very pleasing to see them rewarded for all their hard work.”
Tilley made his senior debut for the club in the goalless draw with Middlesbrough in May 2015, and scored his first goal in the 1-0 Carabao Cup victory over Barnet in August.
Cox has appeared in all six of Albion’s Premier League 2 fixtures so far this season, as well as the Checkatrade Trophy matches against MK Dons and Oxford United.
