Charlie's Brighton & Hove Albion Contract Extended

Charlie's Brighton & Hove Albion Contract Extended

We were delighted to hear recently that Charlie Tasker's dedication has been rewared with a further two year contract with the Seagulls.

Charlie has been with Brighton since he was 6 years old and was signed while at Under 9’s level. He trains three days a week with a game on a Sunday and just before Christmas was asked by the club to start training with the Under15/16’s and to also increase his day release from once a week to twice to help him even further with his development.

Charlie has represented the club in 14 international tournaments to date, and not even lockdown is getting in his way. He has been set challenges for his own Under14’s age group and the 15/16’s, along with video zoom calls twice a week - all keeping him very busy alongside his school work.

Charlie's Mum and Dad told Ms Austin; "His pure determination and perseverance  has certainly made us very proud parents."
