Match worn Brighton & Hove Albion 2017/18 away shirt, worn by Israeli striker Tomer Hemed #10 vs. Tottenham Hotspur away on 13 December 2017 at Wembley Stadium (as Tottenham's home stadium was under reconstruction). Hemed started and played 72 minutes as Brighton lost 2-0.
Hemed joined Brighton in summer 2015 from Spanish side Almeria, and together with fellow compatriot Beram Kayal (both grew up together at Maccabi Haifa), helped Brighton get promoted to the Premier League. In his only season with Brighton in the Premier League, he scored 2 goals and provided 2 assists in 16 league appearances (of which 9 he started), as Brighton finished in 14th place.
In total, he made 108 appearances for Brighton in all competitions from 2015 to 2018, scoring 33 goals and providing 12 assists, before being loaned out to QPR in 2018 and then signing permanently for Charlton Athletic in 2019.
This away kit would later also be the 3rd kit for the following 2018/19 season, following a tradition practiced by the club, where each season's away kit is used as the 3rd kit the following season.
