GOALKEEPER Russ Griffiths returns to the Seagulls after playing for England U20s onTuesday night.

The 19-year-old, who is on loan at the Bay from Everton, played in the 1-0 defeat to hosts Germany in the deciding final match of the Mercedes-Benz Elite Cup tournament.

That made Germany the tournament winners, with England runners-up.

 Russ got his first game after being on the subs bench for the wins against Holland and Turkey, with Colwyn Bay named as his club on the official team sheet.

He is expected to return to the Bay team on Saturday against Blyth Spartans in place of stand-in Louis Gray.
