So much for it being a neutral venue. The announcer actually laughed when announcing the 3rd goal.


We were so bad that I could fully understand it. I thought the announcer was from Sussex FA anyway not BHA.

my complaint has been registered with the fa i suggest all reds fans do likewise utterly disgusting and disrespectful. Luckily half the south stand had emptied and there were 'no' falmer fans or a backlash couldve occurred. A hope Crawley as a club make an official complaint.


If your complaint is in writing, they may be laughing too Smile

You said you thought the announcer was from the Sussex FA. So probably shouldn't be laughing when announcing a goal. If he was the BHA announcer, I could understand it.

The announcer was from the Sussex fa, certainly not the usual bloke when Brighton play.
He is supposed to have a neutral take on things surely???

He described us as "Crawley" and Brighton as "The Albion".


I took the same view as RRR in that we were being treated as an "away" team in what was supposed to be a neutral Sussex county final.
The whole thing was bang out of order and in the end did me a favour in not witnessing the sad end of our current regime.

I didn't really think he was laughing at us. Big overreaction IMHO.

I thought it was funnier how the old fool kept referring to penalties 'kicks from the penalty mark'.

What I did find a shame was that each club could have had a half of the West Stand. There was plenty of room and might have been more atmosphere. Then again the Sussex FA always seem to struggle with these things.

I'm pretty sure the announcer was the same one who was announcer at the semi final down at Lancing.

I think Sussex FA should take a hard look at themselves, it was by no means neutral with us stuffed in a corner and "the Albion" fans in the posh seats along the side.

Also the announcer was very partisan , but if we had scored he may have gave us similar affection in his voice, we'll never know now.

The game is over , the season is nearly over, time to look forward .

come on you reds !

Are we really getting all upset at the tone of the stadium announcer?

At least it highlights the announcers role in the game calling them that. Law 10 section 3 Laughing
