Pupils watch, 'Seagulls' stun the 'Swans'
Staff, pupils and parents travelled to the Amex Stadium on Saturday 24th February to see Brighton and Hove Albion take on Swansea City.
With the Premier League passing it's half way stage of the season, this was an important game for both teams with regards to their battle for survival in England's elite division.
The pupils arrived at the ground excited by the prospect of watching a live football match, for some it was their first ever game.
The winter weather meant a trip to the club shop was an ideal opportunity to escape the cold and stock up hats and scarves adorned with the logo of the 'mighty seagulls'
As we took our seats we were able to take in the atmosphere and an excellent view of all corners of the pitch. Brighton settled into their stride quickly and the pupils were soon out of their seats applauding Glen Murray's coolly taken penalty, 1-0 Brighton. That’s how the first half ended. A quick dash for hot chocolate, Haribo and hot dogs meant the half time interval was soon over.
With both teams taking to the field, Brighton soon extended their lead though Glen Murray who side footed his second goal into the back of the net. Brighton soon lead 3-0 as the ever dangerous Anthony Knockaert got on the score sheet. Brighton were now in fine form as the Rose Hill pupils joined 30,000 fans in singing the famous Brighton chants of 'Albion' and 'Seagulls'. Brighton scored yet another goal, but unfortunately in the wrong goal as Lewis Dunk diverted the ball into his own net. However all was forgotten five minutes later as Jürgen Locadia scored on his Premier League debut. The game finished 4-1 in Brighton's favour.
It was lovely to see so many pupils and parents sharing a day out together and the result was the icing on the cake.
Thank you to everyone who attended the match and made it possible.
