Brighton & Hove Albion have become the envy of football clubs across the country following an £80 million injection from internet gambling entrepreneur Tony Bloom.
Dividing his time between Sussex and Melbourne, the club’s new chairman marks a third generation to have a member on the board.
His uncle, Ray, is a club director and Harry, his grandfather, was vice-chairman when the club reached the old first division in 1979.
Almost all of the funds from the high stakes poker player will be absorbed by the club’s new Falmer Stadium.
