to play. That is wrong. We had to go to Julia. If Kent is the Garden of England, then Priests' Field is the outside bath we had. it's been 40 miles for a home game I mean it's absolutely fine so for two years we played Chillingham myself and Attila that stockbroker ran the PA at home games to send them off it was horrible going there it was horrible actually treated us more like away fans we were cornered and we weren't allowed to do this we weren't allowed to do that we weren't allowed to arrive before the appointed time obviously the next thing we needed to do was bring the club back to Brighton so we started bringing home the L bean campaign standard obviously. in local council and we basically told the council you know we need a house in Brighton and Hove please find us one, if not we will form the seagull party and run against you in the next election and please Of course, they were scared of t hat, so they found us in a place to play by putting up a sports stadium that became for league football totally unsuitable for league football with uncovered bleachers and very little capacity and it was obvious that this It was only going to be a stopgap until we were able to get permission for a new permanent home.
