22 June 2019

On this day four years ago, Brighton & Hove Albion signed Liam Rosenior from Hull City on a three-year-deal.

The defender would go on to make 52 appearances for the Seagulls and was a member of the side who won promotion to the Premier League for the first time in the club’s history at the end of the 2016/17 campaign.

His debut for the club came at the start of the 2015/16 season in a 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest at the Amex Stadium.

Rosenior would go on to make 31 appearances for the Seagulls that term, as the side achieved a third-placed league finish, before narrowly losing out to Sheffield Wednesday in the semi-finals of the play-offs in May 2016 at Hillsborough, prompting the well-renowned gesture to the travelling fans that night in Yorkshire.

Ten appearances in the 2016/17 season followed, and he then played three times in the first half of the side’s first Premier League campaign, as well as an appearance in the Emirates FA Cup, before hanging up his boots at the conclusion of the 2017/18 season.

Since retirement, Rosenior has taken up the role as a coach for Simon Rusk’s under-23 side on the south coast after completing his UEFA pro licence, and the former full-back was a then key part of the backroom set-up which oversaw the young Seagulls achieve a third-placed finish last term in their debut season in the top flight.

Rosenior is also now regarded as one of the most insightful and well-spoken pundits on TV, with his airtime having increased significantly throughout the 2018/19 season.
