Seagulls supporters have been voting on their best-ever Brighton and Hove Albion team.

Seagulls supporters have been voting on their best-ever Brighton and Hove Albion team for a t-shirt soon to be stocked in the club’s superstore.

The tops, priced £17, will be available in blue and white at the Seagulls superstore from July 24

T-shirt firm Elevens announced earlier this year that it planned to produce a new top for Seagulls fans emblazoned with the club’s greatest ever team.

Sam Thomas, director at Elevens, teamed up with Brighton and Hove Independent to ask fans to submit their dream teams on social media so the design would accurately reflect exactly who fans considered worthy of a place among Albion icons.

And the results are in.

Michel Kuipers appears in goal, in front of a back four of Gary Stevens, Steve Foster, Mark Lawrenson and Wayne Bridge. Brian Horton, Liam Bridcutt, Jimmy Case and Vicente make up the midfield, with Bobby Zamora and Peter Ward picked in attack. Alan Mullery, who still works for the Seagulls, was voted the team’s greatest ever manager, fighting off competition from the likes of Guy Poyet and Micky Adams.

Mr Thomas said: “We were delighted with the response from Brighton fans and we thank them for their input and the great conversation it started.

“We are really excited about the launch at the superstore and hope the fans like the final XI.”
