    Former Seagull Simon Funnell is planning a charity match in memory of his 18 day old daughter, Ella, who sadly died of Meningitis just before Christmas. The match is scheduled for Sunday 5th September and will be played at Three Bridges FC between a Brighton XI and a Palace XI. Steve Kember is putting together the Palace team.
    Hope you will be able to attend this fun day in aid of this worthy charity and see some of your old favourites.

    Count me in for doing what I can to raise cash and awareness is there a fund raising link?
    I don't care what you say to me. The whole first season at The Amex, I went to all Gus Poyet's pre match press conferences. I asked the great man what I wanted , when I wanted. It's something money can't buy.

    I'm sorry to hear of the family's loss. Funnell was one of my favourite players for his work ethic and 'finesse'. I'll try and make it down to the match.
    You are the result of 4 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.

    Thanks all for kind comments. I'll put up more details of the match when they are available but it is intended that the ground will open at 11am, bar at noon and kick off at 1pm. We are still in the planning stage but will be publicising the game in papers and hopefully on radio too in due course.

    18 days, my heart goes out to him, and both your families.
    I guess NSC was all over it at the time, maybe it just didn't stick in my memory.

    Personally I don't think there could be any worse a tragedy, I hope Simon and family are well, in the circumstances.

    The Ella Funnell Brighton v Palace game was featured in the Argus this morning -very sad story but great to see the amount of money being raised for chairty.

    Couldnt find a link on the Argus site but there is one here on the Three Bridges fc site

    Three Bridges Football Club

    Argus said that Gus is being asked to play which would be good to see.
