Official: 2022 Flamingos invitee signs new deal with Brighton & Hove

Through a statement on their official website, Brighton & Hove have announced that 2022  Nigeria women's national U17 football team invitee Comfort Erhabor  has committed her future to the club. 


Erhabor has put pen to paper on her first professional contract, a year after her arrival from West Ham United. 


The 18-year-old has been a regular for Sinead Hogan-Belcher's U19 squad since joining Brighton & Hove.


Erhabor is very highly thought of by Brighton & Hove first team coaches as she was named in the traveling squad to Seville for their pre-season preparations and has been invited to train with the senior players on countless occasions. 


She has appeared in fifteen matches for Brighton & Hove's U19 team and was a key member of the side that won the Nike Cup in October 2023.


Commenting on Erhabor's new deal with Brighton, U19 coach Sinead Hogan-Belcher said: "We are delighted that Comfort has signed her first professional contract and committed her future at Brighton.


"Her hard work and determination have been exceptional since she joined the club last year, and she has continuously performed at a good level in both an Under-19 and first-team environment.


"She is a talented young goalkeeper with a bright future ahead of her, and she thoroughly deserves this opportunity as she aims to progress further."


Comfort Erhabor was invited to the Nigeria U17 Girls National Team for a training camp ahead of the 7th Fifa U17 Women's World Cup in India.
