Brighton announce losses of 2.2m
Withdean stadium
Brighton have been hindered by playing at the Withdean
Brighton have revealed operating losses of 2.2m for the financial year ending June 2006 as their bid to secure a new stadium at Falmer drags on.

The figure, from their second season in the Championship which ended in relegation, has risen from 976,000 the previous year.

The rise illustrates the financial burden of continuing to play at their temporary Withdean home.

The club's net loss was just 253,000, thanks to the sale of star players.

Over 2m was raised from the transfer of Adam Virgo to Celtic and Dan Harding to Leeds.

Brighton will have been without a home for 10 years at the end of this season after their Goldstone Ground was sold from under them by previous chairman Bill Archer.

Their proposed 22,000-seater stadium in the Falmer area of the city is the subject of a second public inquiry following continued opposition from Lewes District Council.

Meanwhile, skipper Dean Hammond's season could be over after he suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury which will now hasten his much-needed hernia operation.
