Brighton and Hove finally released Stannard after his fifth season, during which he missed forty of the fifty-one competitive matches due to suspension. As he pointed out after his dismissal, the eleven matches in which he played produced ten of Brighton's fifteen victories of the season. Despite this record, no other first division team would take Stannard on: but, playing from second-division clubs, he nevertheless attained enough ranking points to join the Grandmaster tour in 1991. Many Brighton supporters had followed him when he left, and the club was relegated to the second division of the Trellis National League the following season - often to play *against* whichever second-division club was employing Stannard's services at the time.
