Lions sent two Junior teams south to Brighton and Hove Albion to test them against Premier League opposition.
The Under 9 and Under 15 Whites enjoyed the great facilities at the Seagulls Junior training set up and were up for the challenge.
Facing the ‘Elite’ group of the BHAFC Youth system, which is a step below their full Academy team, Lions showed they were up to the job.
Firstly the Under 9s earned a creditable draw against their counterparts, while the Under 15s managed a 2-0 victory.
Under 9s boss Robert Joseph said: ‘We could have won, but the boys represented the club with plenty of pride and passion’.
While Under 15s Andrew Myers commented: ‘They were surprised at our level and the margin could have been greater. We will hopefully go back and play their actual Academy side next time’.
