THE Seagulls’ on loan keeper Russell Griffiths was on the bench as England U20s beat Holland 3-1 in their opening game in the four-nation Mercedes-Benz Elite Cup tournament in Germany last night.

England play Turkey on Saturday and hosts Germany next Tuesday before Russ returns to the Bay in time for the home game against current league leaders Blyth Spartans on October 17.
