Albion have been shortlisted twice at the Sussex Sports Awards.

Two of Brighton & Hove Albion’s teams have been shortlisted at the upcoming Sussex Sports Awards.

The club’s powerchair and women’s team have both been recognised for their highly-impressive achievements in 2016, after being nominated in the Rix & Kay Solicitors LLP Team of the Year and Juice 107.2 Young Team of the Year categories respectively.

Albion’s powerchair team play in the national powerchair league, the top division for the sport in the country.  Despite being an adult league, all of the club’s players are under 18 and managed to secure a very respectable fifth-place finish.

The team subsequently achieved qualification for the powerchair equivalent of the Champions League, finishing sixth in the tournament and being the only team to beat eventual winners and current French champions, Auch.


Albion women are preparing for their first-ever season in the Women’s Super League Two (WSL2), after becoming the overall Women’s Premier League champions in 2015/16, following their thrilling 4-2 victory over Sporting Club Albion in the Championship Play-Off Final in May.

The Seagulls finished two points clear of second-place Charlton Athletic at the top of the Women’s Premier League Southern Division table, winning 17 games, drawing three times and losing only twice in 22 matches.

The team also managed to retain the Sussex Women’s Challenge Cup in March this year, after beating Crawley Wasps 5-1 in the final.

Albion’s powerchair team face competition for their award from nominees Worthing RFC Colts Under-17s and the Beacon Lifesaving Club, while Albion women are in the same category as Heartbeat United FC and Sussex Thunder Netball Club.

The awards ceremony takes place at The Grand Hotel in Brighton on Friday 25th November, and the full list of finalists can be found here.
