Albion colours were flying high in Paraguay last night – thanks to their signing of Julio Enciso.

The teen’s uncle Juan Espinola held aloft a Seagulls shirt with squad No.19 on the terraces at Libertad.

They won 1-0 against Cerro Porteno to secure top spot in the Apertura.

Juan also sported an Albion cap and jacket among the mass of Libertad black and white.


Enciso was watching progress from Brighton and sent a congratulatory message to his former Libertad team-mates.

He contributed 11 goals to their table-topping campaign, making him third top scorer in the league.
