Initially promoted to the top flight in 1979, Brighton were relegated and lost the FA Cup final to Manchester United four years later. A troubled period, beset by financial problems, followed. The Seagulls ended up homeless when the Goldstone Ground closed in 1997 and almost slipped out of the Football League.

Past players include Peter Ward, Brian Horton, Mark Lawrenson, Bobby Zamora and Bruno.
