It seems that as soon as one football season finishes, the next season starts – there hardly seems to be a gap between them. The players take a holiday, and are back in pre-season training before playing friendly matches in the run up to the season opener.
Tonight I covered the Brighton & Hove Albion Under 23s friendly match against Whitehawk at the Enclosed Ground in East Brighton.
I felt quite rusty at first, reactions maybe a little slower, so it was good for me to have an opportunity to have a practice match and get back into the rhythm before the season kicks off.
My gallery of photos from the match can be seen here on the Brighton & Hove Albion website. Do take a look.
