“It seems like a lifetime since the last game at The Hawthorns, the two two draw with Charlton Athletic, and that late penalty for the visitors, now a distant memory, a memory that was further diminished by a late penalty for Albion and three points against a very good Sheffield Wednesday side on Saturday.

There was also a lot to celebrate in the Regis Suite as well, with former Albion full-back Barry Cowdrill being the latest former player to receive his club cap, Association President Brendon Batson OBE doing the honours in front of a packed audience of legends, Treasurer Norman Westbury, and Brendon, being joined by Bobby Hope, Bob Taylor, Gary Robson, Tony Brown, Andy Johnson and Dave Butler It certainly set the scene for a very successful afternoon. Brendon ws also ver prominent touring the Est stand suites, collection of behalf of the West Midlands Air Ambulance appeal.

In the East Stand, Garry Thompson and Ally Robertson were on duty w9ith pre-match and post match Q and A sessions, whilst Joe Mayo and gary hackett, joined pre-match tours and visited Corporate boxes before the kick off.

Little time to catch our breath before the next round of matches this coming week with Albion welcoming Bristol City to the ‘Shrine’, as the this unrelenting league warms up for the Christmas merry go round!.”
