Albion fans have been urged to show Goldstone great Peter O’Sullivan their support.

The former winger collapsed last week and has been on life support.

He is now recovering slowly in hospital.

His family would love supporters to get behind him and send get well wishes and cards.

Sully, now 71, was a massive favourite at the Goldstone in the 1970s and made 491 appearances for the club in total.

He is still fondly remembered by those who cheered the Seagulls on their climb from third division to first in what were heady days along Old Shoreham Road.

His wife Kimberley would particularly love to have cards to take to him.

She said: “This will help with his cognitive therapy and keep him busy. I know that this will uplift him.”

As he recovers, Sully will send 'thank you' cards in reply, thanking people for their ongoing support.

Cards for Sully can be sent to our office at The Argus, 33 Bond Street, Brighton, BN1 1RD and will be passed on.

Messages of support, or memories of his playing days which might make him smile, can be left at the bottom of this article or emailed to

But cards are best!
