Jason Thackeray decided to start keeping a record of Brighton games when it looked like the Albion may make the Premier League and decided to continue with the project despite the fact they lost in the play-offs.

Since then the Albion have gone through two managers and narrowly missed out on another promotion – all of which is covered in his book Brighton But Only At Home, albeit with a twist.

The author explained: “I promised my wife I would spend away game weekends with our kids rather than at the other end of the country. This meant I would be documenting at least half the season on second-hand evidence. Part of the book looks at the utter futility of trying to do so properly.”

Mr Thackeray has been following the Seagulls since 1980 and sits in the West Stand Upper where this season he will be joined by his son.

He runs a popular blog and for more details on the book, priced £2.40, visit: www.brightononlyathome.wordpress.com.
