Another season comes to a close but as we put pen to paper a lot has still to be decided. It has been a very interesting 12 months, the excitement provided on the pitch, who will forget the performances against QPR and Leeds, the drama of the emotive dismissal of our Head Coach who had given the club a lift with his passion for unity.

The “Bowler” initiative of a cap for every player who made a first team debut has been a feature of match days and the Association is delighted to have been involved and that we have managed to get many of the caps presented to former players or their families. One of the highlights of this honour was back in January when the 1978 squad came together for the Norwich game, along with family members of both Cyrille Regis and Laurie Cunningham, to commemorate 12 months since the death of Big C.
Godden, Batson, Statham, Wile, Robertson, Brown, Trewick along with Cyrille’s children and Laurie’s niece all received caps pitchside from assistant manager Colin Addison.
Another exciting occasion was in March before the Birmingham game when the 1976 FA Youth cup wining side re-convened for the first time since that historic moment, the opportunity was taken to meet up with the Youth Cup semi finalists for 2019.

We have continued to give our support and co-operation to the Hospitality Department on match days with former players escorting the Club’s match day sponsors on a tour of the ground, answering questions fired in the hospitality suites and holding court with the executive box holders. We have welcomed some new faces such as Craig Shakespeare, Peter Odemwingie, Rob Hulse and Nigel Quashie but also involved those with experience in this role like Ally Robertson, Brendon Batson, Paul Raven, Daryl Burgess and many more. Our members enjoy it and we are sure the club’s guests certainly do.

The relationship with the Foundation has flourished and we hope that during the year we can have some joint events whereby both parties benefit. Shortly we will be participating in the Battle of the Baggies, having entered a team in there golf day a week before. Both organisations will benefit from a luncheon on Friday 15th November when John Giles will be the guest speaker supported by Willie Johnston and Mick Martin.

Many of our members participate in golf days, these are normally for the benefit of various charities. Talking of which our annual golf day is once again at Walsall Golf Club on Monday 24th June. A team of 3 plus a former player costs just £350, last year a number of new entries were received and they have already signed up for this year. The usual names will be present – Joe Mayo, Don Goodman, Paul Raven, Gary Owen, Ray Wilson, Gordon Nisbet who flies in from his Portuguese home plus many more. A really enjoyable day for any golfer.

May we take this opportunity of wishing James Shan and the players a successful play off campaign, the season now becomes potentially a 3 game finale. A swift return to the Premiership would be a tremendous achievement.
