    I don’t particuarly care for B&HAFC and find their supporters a tad pious at time.

    But that’s a great article, and Brightons story cannot fail to impact on football supporting for decades to come.

    I have been a supporter since the age of 7 and Im now 72. I used to go on the train from Brighton with my dad to Hove station and walk to the Goldstone.Its a pity it was ever sold to make a certain Director even richer. There were obviously a few hand outs there
