Aged just 19, Ben White has the composure and ability of a much older player and has been tipped to have a big future!

Ben White joined the prestigious Southampton Academy aged eight and remained there until the age of 16.  He then joined Brighton and Hove Albion's academy where he has continued to shine ever since.

He made his professional debut for the Seagulls against Colchester last season and was a key figure in Brighton's U23 Checkatrade Trophy side last season.

After four season playing at U23's level, Ben decided it was time to test his skills against experienced pros and get some minutes under his belt in League football.

After speaking to the County management team, White decided there was no better Club to test himself at than Newport County and he joined the Exiles on a year long loan.

Since joining, White has been a key figure in defence alongside Mickey Demetriou and Mark O'Brien and was voted the Fans' Player of the Match twice in a row in his second and third matches!

A real talent and certainly one to watch for the future.
