The Argus: Police mingle with the fans at Albions last match at Withdean Police mingle with the fans at Albions last match at Withdean

Police have praised football fans after a hot, noisy but trouble-free end to Brighton and Hove Albion's last match at the Withdean Stadium.

As the 8,300 crowd dispersed at the end of the Albion's match against Huddersfield Town this afternoon, police report that there have been no incidents, arrests, or injuries.

Inspector Andy Kundert, match commander for Sussex Police, said: "The atmosphere was really good throughout and, together with the club with whom we have worked closely at Withdean for 12 years now, we thank the fans of both sides for their co-operation.

"We are already working with the club to help ensure that in the new era at the Amex Community Stadium everyone will be as safe and secure as they have been at Withdean."

They need to go to the pub next to Albion Kebabs, hardly a good atmosphere there, more like threatening meatheads

When i popped in for a drink they were in high spirits, but not threatening or agressive. I had my two children in tow, who were made to feel more than welcome. Maybe the police were over stretched dealing with the Swampy muppets trying to smash up the Tesco Express down the road, but i expect you have sympathy with them
