A look at the midfielder's early career.
Dessie Hutchinson signed his first professional contract for the Seagulls in July 2017 and went on to share the under-23 captaincy during their 2016/17 Premier League 2 (Division 2) season.
The central midfielder has become an intergral part of Simon Rusk's team, linking up play in the middle of the park and showing his leadership qualities throughout the season.
Hutchinson featured in all five Checkatrade Trophy games as the Seagulls progressed out of their group and beat AFC Wimbledon in the next round, before losing to the eventual winners Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena.
