Brighton & Hove Albion Football Book
- Gift Details
The Brighton and Hove Albion Football Book – it’s a seriously big hitter. This newspaper-sized hardback kicks off in the early part of the 20th century in order to trace the team’s history through reprints of original reports.
Kicking things off with coverage of Brighton’s FA Cup first round win over Preston in 1908, this football book charts the Seagull’s history right up to the end of last season. Formed in 1902, the Seagulls have since experienced great victories, all captured in this spectacular edition.
It’s a safe bet that no one reading this book will have been around in 1910, when Brighton beat Villa by a single goal in the FA Charity Shield. So here’s the chance, through reprints of original newspaper reports, to relive the Seagull’s only national triumph to date. Not that Brighton’s history has been dull – far from it.
There’s also coverage of the 6-0 drubbing of Watford in ’58 that secured the Division Three title, as well as the press’ views on Brian Clough’s time at the club and the promotions into Division Two and One in ’77 and ’79, respectively. And, of course, the Cup Final of ’83 also features heavily. Things wind up at the end of last season.
