He has taken on the captaincy of the academy side and has shown true leadership. His attitude and effort levels have been exceptional and he has been a great role model for the rest on the team. He consistently demonstrates the skills of teamwork, passion and determination.
The game against Bristol City was exciting as Brigthon won 2-1. Below are Ellis' comments on the match:
“I thought it was an amazing atmosphere. Although, Brighton went 1 nil down the atmosphere stayed alive and when Bobby Zamora scored it was crazy.
I would 110% go again when/if another opportunity comes up and I thought the experience was one of the best I’ve experienced.”
