Class act: Ryan makes fan's day as Brighton topple Arsenal
Mat Ryan continues to endear himself to the Brighton and Hove Albion faithful after the Aussie performed another classy act in England overnight.
The Caltex Socceroos keeper escorted a young mascot onto the field prior to Brighton’s English Premier League clash with Arsenal at the Amex Stadium.
The young girl was clearly thrilled with the experience and it prompted her mother to send Ryan a message of gratitude on social media.
It’s not the first time Ryan has shown his willingness to embrace the fans.
Just last month the shot-stopper was approached by a youngster on the pitch following his side’s thrilling draw with Stoke City.
The Aussie had just saved a last-minute penalty to rescue a point for his side and the fan wanted to hug the Socceroo, with Ryan obliging.
The 25-year-old also took off his match-worn jersey and presented it to the star-struck youngster.
On the field, Brighton held off a late challenge from the Gunners to secure an upset 2-1 win over Arsene Wenger’s side.
It’s the Seagulls’ third win in four matches and they remain unbeaten in their last five EPL fixtures.
