Beacon Blog 24 – Beacon Awards Seagulls Star
Hello and welcome back to the Beacon Blog. This week we’ve been incredibly busy and had the pleasure of attending the Brighton & Hove Albion Player’s Awards. Not only were we in attendance but we were also sponsors for the Player of the Year Award, voted for by the fans. It was a tremendous evening with lots of fans of the Albion in attendance, inside the Mayo Wynne Baxter Lounge. We were delighted to present the award to Pascal Gross, the midfielder who’s netted 6 goals for Brighton since arriving at the club in May of last year.
Beacon were delighted to be able to bring along 11 year old Alfie Giles, and his father David, who we were put in touch with by the brilliant play team at St. Alexandra Hospital in Brighton. Alfie and David are big Brighton fans and really enjoyed spending the evening meeting all the players. Alfie was sure to get his picture taken with his favourite players and got as many signatures as possible throughout the evening. We were very pleased to have shared the evening with him and his dad and were glad they had a good time!
Also joining us on the table were Beram Kayal and Tomer Hemed, two players from the current Brighton squad. As the evening went on we heard from chairman Tony Bloom and enjoyed a lovely meal, before the categories were announced and the winners collected their awards. Amongst the winners were Jose Izquierdo, who received the award for goal of the season, and a number of fans - young and old - were also recognised for what they do for the club and the community involved with it.
We love to see the positive impact that football can have on people and communities and are very proud to be a part of that, even if just in a small way. To see the Player of the Year Award now, or to watch the entire ceremony, check out the link below – you can skip ahead to 1:11:30 to see me on stage giving the award on behalf of Beacon Training!
