The Big Local Derby!!
"In terms of 'Big' matches, they do not come much bigger than a local 'derby' between the two great foes of West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa, and the chance for the fans of either club to gain the 'Bragging rights' for just a few short months, is probably top of their Christmas list, well with the seasonal period just a week or so away, those rights were assumed by Albion and their fans after a narrow but enthralling encounter between the two sides at The Hawthorns on Saturday (13th December).
On hand, in the various suites to entertain the Corporate guests were three 'iconic legends' of the past Cyrille Regis, Tony Morley, and Derek Statham, who joined resident hosts Derek Monaghan and Ray Wilson for the pre and post match summaries. Derek later interviewed the scorer of the only goal of the game Craig Gardner in the Millichip Suite, and the local lad and former Blues and Sunderland mid-fielder, now a firm favourite with the 'Baggies' faithful offered a highly entertaining anecdote to another memorable day in the history of our great club.
