Conservative Group Leader on Brighton & Hove City Council, Cllr. Geoffrey Theobald, has expressed his delight at the decision by Brighton & Hove Albion to hold an end of season victory parade along the seafront on Sunday May 14th.
On behalf of the Conservative Group, on Tuesday he also wrote to the Club’s Chairman, Tony Bloom, congratulating him, and everyone involved with the Seagulls, on their achievement in securing promotion to the Premier League.
Cllr. Theobald said: “4 days on from that historic day and it still hasn’t really sunk in what the club has achieved. To say that it has been a rocky road since 1997 would be an understatement and this makes their promotion to the top tier all the more remarkable. I’m delighted that the club will be holding a victory parade and I’m sure that half of Sussex will turn out to salute their heroes! I am already looking forward to exciting times ahead next season welcoming the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea to the AMEX!”
