Ben Seaton Makes an Impression abroad (posted Thu 1st Sep 2016)
Ben who has come upon through the U18, Reserves and First team has gone to study sport in the USA and in his first appearance for his college side made a good impression - "After nearly 20 minutes of scoreless action the Tribunes retook the lead in the 72nd minute, but Genesee responded in the 80th minute to even the score at two. Livesey sent a cross into the box for Benjamin Seaton, who had his first shot stopped by a defender but managed to find the lower right corner on his second try to tie the game once again." We wish Ben best of luck with his studies and sport and will continue to follow his progress.
