Visitors staff member remembered...

AT THE request of Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club, we will be holding a Minute’s Silence in respect of a member of their staff who tragically lost his life in the Shoreham Air Crash at the weekend. 

Players from both sides will be sporting black arm-bands as mark of respect.

A club statement read: "Matt Grimstone, a member of the club's ground staff at the club's training facility in Lancing, a keen amateur footballer and talented goalkeeper, was on his way to play for Worthing United against Loxwood in the Southern Combination Premier Division at Lyons Way, along with his Mavericks teammate Jacob. 

"The vehicle in which the pair were travelling to the match was hit by the aircraft which crashed on the A27 at Shoreham during the airshow. 

"A former Varndean student, he has worked at the club for the past seven years - starting with the Albion as part of the matchday event team at Withdean."
