Chris Hughton’s Brighton continued their push for the Premier League this week with a convincing 3-1 win over Birmingham City in the Championship.
The Seagulls have been leading the way for the Premier League all season and alongside Newcastle United, they’re looking pretty certain to be in the top flight when May eventually does roll around.
And there’s one man who has made a real difference in the Brighton side this season and that’s £213,000-rated winger Solly March.
Whilst March hasn’t quite grabbed the headlines like Anthony Knockaert has at times this campaign, the 22-year old has been in very good form for large amounts of the season and his development is continuing at a very good rate indeed.
And he’s a player we expect to really shine when Brighton do eventually make it to the Premier League next season, after years of getting so close.
March is a player who has progressed all the way through the Seagulls academy since he joined them as a teenager and when he does eventually make that bow in the Premier League, it will be a proud moment for all who have been involved with his development.
He’s a man that has a serious amount of skill in his locker and his progress has been rewarded with a place in the England U21’s side in recent months too.
Whilst the likes of Jack Grealish, Demarai Gray and Josh Murphy continue to grab lots of the headlines on the international set-up, March has gone a little unnoticed, working away as he looks to continue his development.
But March, unlike some of his colleagues in the England U21 set-up, looks to get his chance on the biggest stage of all next season and who knows, he could turn out to be the biggest star for the Seagulls when the chance to play in Premier League does eventually roll around.
