Sea Gulls Flying High: Brighton seal Premier League Promotion

As the final whistle blew at Falmer Stadium, Brighton and Howe Albion mathematically secured Premier League promotion for the first time in their history after securing a  2-1 win over Wigan. The celebrations were in full swing and the cameras centred around Tony Bloom, the man who invested over £250m for new infrastructure, who was slowly taking in the surreal feeling.

Congratulatory messages came in from all corners of the football world for an incredible achievement by the club who will now play amongst the 'big boys' of English football.

 

 

The club did foresee the situation and released an official press statement requesting the fans not to invade the pitch, should they secure promotion in any one of their last two home matches.
 

That ended well…mm-hmm yes?

 

 

 

 

They were a community club on the verge of elimination from football league altogether only a couple of decades ago, but football would be a poorer sport without such fairytales.

 

 

 

Most of the Brighton players left the player's lounge to continue the celebrations with the fans. And they responded eloquently.

On Road and Rail, Up Up and Away.
