Rising star Solly signs long-term deal

The Argus: Solly March Solly March

Albion have secured the long-term future of Solly March by clinching a four-year deal with their brightest prospect.

March’s new contract replaces the development contract he signed in 2013, which still still had a year to run.

The talented teenager’s first team breakthrough this season has caught the eye of Premier League and Championship clubs.

March has made 22 first team appearances under Oscar Garcia during the current campaign, the latest in Tuesday’s stunning 4-1 win at promoted leaders Leicester.

The versatile 19-year-old was given more responsibility against Leicester, starting in central midfield for the first time after featuring previously on the right wing.

Head coach Oscar said: “Solly has made great progress this season and deserves this new contract. He has done very well in the matches he has played and has been a pleasure to work with.

“It’s hard for any young player to break through into the first team but it is even harder to stay there. That is the next challenge for Solly.

“He has the capability and, if he continues to work hard, I am confident he will achieve that.”

March, born in Eastbourne, was snapped up by Albion from Lewes in November 2011. His father Steve was an apprentice with the Seagulls in the late 1980's.

Fellow prospect Rohan Ince, who has also broken through into the first team as a deep-lying central midfielder under Oscar, signed a new two-and-a-half year contract in January.

A wise and prudent move. There has been much moaning on here about the sale of Barnes and Bridcutt - even though the former was virtually a hate figure hen he was here - but this kind of news shows the club's real ambition.

Good news indeed and I am happy with that.

However, if we can negotiate contract terms with SM before season end why can't we do it with others? I'm thinking TK, KLL, MU, SW etc.. although I know the latter is tied to Wolves at the moment. It's frustrating that we can't tie up these lose ends before the transfer window opens and it becomes free-for-all to raid BHA of it's star assets!

I live in hope that this news is just the first of many such announcements.

Roll on 1507!

Absolutely this, brilliant news and well deserved for Solly he has been a real find, great that our head coach can see the potential in the younger players and he can help these great prospects turn into stars, fantastic business by our club to ensure the future stars are recognized and are rewarded as such. 15.07 cannot come quick enough lets make some noise and show the team our respect and gratitude for Tuesday's superb performance.SEAGULLS

Great news, we now have our prize possession tied to a long contract , if he continues to perform we can either.
1) sell Buckley
2) accept 3-4 million for him.
What a good job lewes did bringing him on rather than Martin HInshlewood who failed to see the obvious talent he and Hall ( we sold him to spurs for 1.5 million) had..
Looking at our great talents ie Noone bennet , bridcutt they have all failed to produce in the higher league.. All three could be in the championship next season!

Agree with your first paragraph but i think your comment over Benno and Noonie are a little harsh as Benno has been injured for most of this season and prior to that has been comfortable in the prem and Noonie has been one of Cardiff's better more exciting players all season, as for Bridders he is too good a player not to succeed where ever he ply's his trade he will definitely be well worth whatever Sunderland paid for him, he is going to be a great player but its churlish of you to think he would be their saviour this season especially as he spent the first half of the season on the treatment table.

The problem is the players you've listed are, unlike Solly, all out-of-contract so free to talk to other clubs already and likely to keep their options open regardless of our keenness with a better (re-)signing-on fee the tasty carrot.


As for Solly himself, what a fantastic piece of good news. Bet he scores today now!

Great news and we'll deserved Solly! I've been frustrated at watching this exceptional natural talent warming the bench when we've been crying out for someone to light things up!

We'll done to Oscar who has really shown the young players that they can have a real future with our club...... when they are prepared to learn and listen....I don't think 'big time Charlie's' will feature in Oscar's thoughts!!!!

Would be great if we did something nice for Lewes too. Heard from people involved at Lewes that wasn't the case when we took Solly. We could do it now and it sends out the message to other small clubs that if they point flourishing talent in our direction we will remember it and reward them accordingly.

I just want this club to be known as a club who cares for the less fortunate too. After all it brings more success for us as we'll.

Wishing the lads a fantastic reception and display today with the crowd in great spirits leaving their 'hate chants' out of proceedings. Love will always overcome fear and all hatred comes from fear.

What a good job lewes did bringing him on rather than Martin HInshlewood who failed to see the obvious talent he and Hall ( we sold him to spurs for 1.5 million) had..
Looking at our great talents ie Noone bennet , bridcutt they have all failed to produce in the higher league.. All three could be in the championship next season!
Agree with your first paragraph but i think your comment over Benno and Noonie are a little harsh as Benno has been injured for most of this season and prior to that has been comfortable in the prem and Noonie has been one of Cardiff's better more exciting players all season, as for Bridders he is too good a player not to succeed where ever he ply's his trade he will definitely be well worth whatever Sunderland paid for him, he is going to be a great player but its churlish of you to think he would be their saviour this season especially as he spent the first half of the season on the treatment table.
I have been surprised at Bridcutts form since moving to Sunderland.
I know he has been in a struggling team,but when seeing the brief glimpses of him on MOTD he has looked like a little boy lost.
And when I've seen him, he's more than held his own as a premiership player. Matter of opinion I guess
Against spurs he was dragged out of his comfort zone by pace and movement, Sunderland fans don't rate him, they describe him as a cheap chattermole... If Sunderland lose today they can start planning for relegation
Only to add Noone has been exellent for Cardiff this season. Not to many players have scored at Ethad this season , Bridcutt I think was not on form for us in the same manner of previous seasons this year and took that form up to Sunderland.
The step up to premier level is massive even for 30 million pound players ask Spurs. Not a spurs fan out there who would not want Bale rather than the 4-5 they did buy.
Let's hope today we can put away a lower side as well as a top six. Upa

I never thought Bridcutt was as fabulous as people on here thought and it is no surprise to me he is struggling. Very over-rated. He looked lost in his Scotland games too despite what some posters reported.
Interesting to see that managers and coaches are favouring 4-4-2 again (which I was advocating months ago and some lesser judges said I was out of date) with speedy midfielders drifting in and out from the wings which is another reason why a holding player like Bridcutt will find it hard as he cannot shoot or run swiftly. Although Ex=Pat Argue will differ, 4-4-2 is really only the way to get out of this Division.

MBTS, I think Gus is already planning for life in the Championship, which is why he wants Buckley, so my contact in Sunderland tells me. If they stay up, he won't be so keen on him.

Bridcutt looked lost in his Scotland games? He played once and was several independent reporters MoM.

I'll ignore your comment re 442 as it's nonsense.
