31st December 2011

Archie Darlison six on 1st Dec has become the first NWSS member to become a match day Mascot. Archie was selected to be the Albion mascot at Coventry City and held the hand of his favourite player Craig None as the players walked onto the pitch. Hi proud Grandfather Mike Wren was there to take the photo's before they both joined the massed ranks of Albion supporters in the stands to watch Albion lose their final game of 2011.

26th December

Boxing Day saw the 2nd NWSS away day of the season to Reading. A good day out was only spoilt by the result.

15th December

Last night the first NWSS Christmas party took place at the Partridge in Partridge Green, a good night was had by all and we were well looked after by Vicki, Rob and their staff. Many thanks.

26th November

As planned, we introduced our second coach route for the Coventry game and it went like a dream. Across the two coaches we transported 64 Albion fans, the most we have so far taken to a game. Both coaches arrived nice and early allowing everyone to soak up the pre-match atmosphere and I dare say a couple of pints and a pie. Full details of both routes and pick-up times can be found on the Transport page.

NWSS Member, Mike Wilson put together some great notes on our recent club meeting at the Hare & Hounds, rather than repeating them here take a look at Mike's site.

20th November

New Coach route, we are planning on adding an addition route to The Amex. Our first coach is now running to full capacity so it is time to add another coach and some extra pick-up points. We aim to start running this coach from the Coventry game and we will be making stops at Broadbridge Heath, Five Oaks, Billingshurst and Partridge Green.


18th November

Over 40 NWSS members attended a fantastic club night at the Hare and Hounds In Cowfold. Charlie Oatway came along and for over an hour answered questions from the audience and then sat down and signed copies of his book. Steve Gibbon, Richard Hebberd and Paul Camillin were also in attendance. Many thanks to all of them for taking the time to come along and making it a great night. We would also like to thank Wendy and all the staff of the Hare & Hounds for making us feel so welcome and looking after us. Cheers

5th November

Albion legend Charlie Oatway has been confirm as our guest for our meeting at the Hare & Hounds in Cowfold on the 17th November.

1st August

The first NWSS coach of the season made its way to and from the Amex on Saturday. Full to the roof, with only the toilet seat spare, 46 NWSS members enjoyed a hassle free trip to watch the final pre-season match of the season and celebrate the official opening of the American Express Community stadium.

15th July

NW Sussex Seagulls and other fan organisations were invited down to The Amex on Friday evening to meet with Richard Hebberd and discuss the best way to build atmosphere within the stadium. To our surprise not only did Richard turn up but so did Ken Brown, Gus Poyet and Tony Bloom as well as Paul Camillin. Everything from the pre match music to where supporter’s flags could be hung was discussed, it was a very open and productive meeting and clear to see that Albion's management team are keen to involve the fans groups. The key take away message is that Gus and the boys are looking for the fans to be the 12th man. They would like supporters to make as much noise as possible and encourage the players at every opportunity. Don't think that's going to be a problem is it?

7th July

A great meeting last night at Shots Pool and Sports bar. Many thanks to Russ our host for looking after us so well. Many thanks also to PC Darren Balkham for his insights on how the police operation in and around The Amex will work. It was really good to see so many new faces and it was also nice to be able to welcome Simon and Dan from the Seagulls over Burwash supporters club.

4th June

We are now taking bookings for seats on the coach to the Amex, please see the Transport page for details. Ian Morris has very bravely stepped forward to become our Treasurer. Welcome Ian.

31st May

Our first meeting took place this evening and here are a few of the notes taken by Mike Wilson who attended as someone who was keen to find out more about the NWSS.

A good inaugural meeting at the Star tonight for the North West Sussex Seagulls Club. Around 30 fans attended on the evening and here in a nutshell are the proposals and costs for coach travel via the new North West Sussex supporters club:

17th May

NWSS can now be found on the official Albion site as well as on Facebook and Twitter.

12th May

Arrangements for the first meeting of the North West Sussex Seagulls have been confirmed. The meeting will take place at The Star in Roffey, Horsham from 7:30 on Tuesday 31st May 2011.

11th May

A small group of Albion fans met over a pint or two of Harvey's to discuss the possibility of setting up a Seagulls supporters group in the Horsham area, with the main aim to provide coach travel to Brighton games. With the feedback that had already been received from fans in the area it was agreed to go ahead with the formation of a group to be called North West Sussex Seagulls. A date for the first formal meeting and location will appear here soon as will the full details of the coach travel.
