Ex Hove Park student Haydon Roberts scored his first senior goal for Brighton and Hove Albion last night in the League cup against Aston Villa on his first team debut in front of nearly 15,000 at the Amex Stadium. An amazing achievement, especially with Haydon playing in defence!
After joining the Seagulls in October 2015, Haydon worked his way through the club’s youth ranks to become a prominent figure in the Albion’s under-18s.
Haydon was so successful last night that fans voted him man of the match on twitter. Amazing!
