Brighton & Hove Albion under-23 midfielder Archie Davies has signed for Whitehawk on a loan deal until January 2018.

Davies, who has stepped into the under-23s after being a mainstay in Ian Buckman’s under-18 side last season, will join up with the National League South side and be available for their game against Bognor Regis Town tonight.

Under-23 coach Simon Rusk said, “This loan move is a great opportunity for Archie to gain valuable experience playing football in a first-team environment.

“He worked very hard in the under-18s last season, also featuring for the under-23s, and we’ll keep track of Archie’s progress during his time at Whitehawk.”

The midfielder helped the under-18s reach the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup last season, and also made one appearance for Simon Rusk’s under-23 side in the Premier League 2 Division 2.
