REMF Chairman Mike Langridge was once again delighted with the efforts of all involved after the fund surpassed the £8000 mark in this 2-1 victory for the Brighton & Hove Albion fans.
Palace went into the game looking to retain the trophy that was won last year at The Amex but were faced with coming back from two behind after goals from Lawrence Edwards and Declan Brewster. A late penalty being converted by The Eagles gave themselves some hope but it wasn’t to be and Brighton regained the trophy.
Sasa Curcic and Robert Quinn were two former players who took the field in the Palace side at The Dripping Pan Stadium and the former Yugoslavia international was delighted to have been asked to be part of this special annual event between the two sides.
"That was fantastic, that brought back some nice memories for me. I had one year in a Palace shirt and when I got the invitation I was so honoured.
"It's important to take part all the time in these charity events. Brighton deserved to win so next year we're going to get better!".
Thanks to all at Lewes Football Club for staging this annual event and to all that took part, contributing to another successful end of season event between the two clubs.
