March has admitted that his team struggled to compete with the Citizens in the 2-0 defeat, but the midfielder said that it was "a proud moment" for him to feature in England's top flight for the first time.
"It was a tough game and a tough introduction into the Premier League, but we know we aren't going to be facing teams like that every week. We are looking forward to next week," March told reporters.
"We had them under pressure for five minutes or so, but they are hard to play against. It was a special day for all of us and it was a proud moment to make my Premier League debut."
Next up for newly-promoted Brighton is a trip to Leicester City on August 19.
