If you’re having withdrawal symptoms now the football season is over,the excitement of the Champions League final has died down and Euro 2012 is just out of reach then get your fix here!
For Brighton & Hove Albion fans young and old, these two books, We Want Falmer and Brighton & Hove Albion: On This Day are must haves!
‘We Want Falmer’, by Paul Hodson and Stephen North, chronicles the club’s historic struggle for a new ground. The story chronicles, through the words of the main protagonists, the next 14 years and the extraordinary, ingenious, humorous, emotional and unique campaign that included marches, petitions, a referendum, soaking Des Lynam, forming a political party, bombarding John Prescott with flowers, a top 20 hit… that, ultimately, ended in the Seagulls’ new home: The Amex Stadium.
‘On This Day’ by Dan Tester chronicles, in diary format, the club’s promotions, relegations, cup runs, courtroom dramas, big matches, marches, boardroom struggles and sensational signings. The book, complete with foreword from Albion legend Peter Ward, also features the enthralling battle the club has faced to secure a permanent home: from the first steps towards securing planning permission to the very first game at the Amex Stadium at Falmer.
