ALBION fans paid tribute on Saturday to the passing commentator, Peter Brackley.

Brighton born and bred and keen Albion fan himself, the man affectionately known as “Brackers”, died on Sunday October 14, aged 67.

Both sets of fans took part in a minute’s applause at the 67th minute of Brighton and Hove Albion’s Saturday match against Wolves.

A picture was displayed on the Amex’s big screen.

Brackers started his career in the 1970s with BBC Radio Brighton.

He went on to commentate on many FA cup, Champions League, and European Cup games across radio and TV, and led the commentary team at the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy.

In his later years worked on The Goldstone Days: 20 Years On! at the Theatre Royal and had a regular column in The Argus.

Albion chief executive Paul Barber commented, “So many of us here at the club knew Peter well.

“He was a hugely talented, knowledgeable, funny and, above all else, a good man. We will miss him. Our condolences go out to Peter’s family, including our colleague and his nephew Paul, and all of his many friends”.
