Brighton Up!

Just a quick note this Bank Holiday Monday to observe that by beating Wigan Athletic 2-1, Brighton and Hove Albion have secured promotion to the Premiership next season.

Huddersfield Town had to beat Derby County in their game to prevent Brighton finishing in the top two automatic promotion places, but having led most of the match they let in a late equaliser and the score finished 1-1.

My team, Newcastle United, are still in second place but their form seems to have deserted them and they may well end up having to endure the playoffs.

But that’s for the future to decide. For now I’d just like to congratulate Brighton and Hove Albion on their achievement, an outcome which will gladden the hearts of many friends and former colleagues at Sussex University.

When I was previously involved with undergraduate admissions, it was widely agreed that having a Premiership side in the locality was a significant factor in attracting students to a University. Today’s results may therefore provide a boost in more ways than one!

 In that light I’m sure that locals will happily put up with even worse traffic congestion in the Falmer area on Match days next year. After all, it’s only for one season….;)
