The Albion clinched the League One title with a win at Walsall. We look back on a fantastic few days for Sussex Football with the county's two major teams winning promotion as champions.
Crawley were the first. A 2-0 win over Tamworth on Saturday 9th April gave them the Blue Square Premier title and promotion to the Football league for the first time in the club's history.
It was the culmination of a magnificent season which also saw the team reach the fifth round of the FA Cup and a glory match against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
