Brighton & Hove Albion do win at the Amex this weekend- with the superb Young Seagulls Christmas Party
Albion came up trumps yet again this year as they hosted just over 2000 Young Seagull members for the annual Christmas Party at the Amex Stadium.
Not only could the young fans meet the entire squad for an autograph and photo session, there was also a host of other activities to keep them thoroughly entertained.
Former chairman Dick Knights hope that no future generations of the ‘children of Mile Oak’ would be lost to the club, is paying off, as most of youngsters proudly wore replica Albion tops
Amanda Wheeler from Worthing told Brighton & Hove News her family queued for nearly two and a half hours to meet the Albion’s Premier League players but that “it was well worth the wait”
Aside from Santa’s grotto,the kids could visit a Candy Cane Forest in the Harvey’s Lounge and play traditional fair ground games to win a prize. There was also an all day disco in the Mansell McTaggert lounge – with spot prizes being given out for the best dancers
One of the more popular events occurred in the Mayo Wynn Baxter lounge, where a magician, a bubble sculptor and very lifelike Polar Bear entertained the children.
All in all a smashing day organised by the club – which will hopefully ensure the youngsters that attended will realise how lucky they are to have such a great football club within their City and stay loyal to the Albion like many older fans have done throughout the years
