New date for development squad finale at Brighton
A new date has been confirmed for our Premier League 2 trip to Brighton & Hove Albion next month, an outing that will be the final game of the season for Joe Edwards’s development squad.
He is a diminutive, fast and tenacious player who can operate in any defensive or attacking role on the right side and made his youth team debut at the end of 2016/17 away at Manchester City. In his first season as a scholar, Lamptey was the highest Under-18s appearance-maker and contributed with 11 assists as Jody Morris's side secured an unprecedented Quadruple of trophies.
His only goal of the campaign came in the national league final at Manchester United, the last in our 3-0 victory, cementing his attacking prowess from wing-back. A stellar season was rewarded with a first international call-up in the summer of 2018 as the teenager headed to Finland with the England Under-19s for the European Championship finals.
Lamptey was the highest Under-18s appearance-maker in 2017/18 and scored in the national league final against Manchester United.
Lamptey signed a first professional contract in September 2017 committing him to the club until the end of the 2019/20 season.
