Brighton defender White delivers special momentoes to former Newport teammates

Brighton defender Ben White came armed with special momentoes before their FA Cup victory over former club Newport.

With shirt-swapping currently banned due to government regulations, the England hopeful brought a few signed Brighton shirts in carrier bags when heading back to Newport on Sunday.

He gave them to his old County team-mates and the kit man after Albion's Cup win, in honour of what they did for him there three years ago in what was his first loan.

It showed how White has not forgotten those who helped him become one of the top flight's hottest properties.

Exiles boss Michael Flynn told The Sun: “It was an unbelievable gesture. You want to see people like that go all the way and I'm sure he will."
