ALBION'S players underlined the club’s support for ‘Albion Foundation Day’ during their Barclays Premier League clash with Manchester City – and here's how you can too.
We're offering you the chance to bag a Baggies match shirt from the Hawthorns clash and, at the same time, raise much-needed funds for the club’s charitable arm, The Albion Foundation.
Up for grabs in our official auction are the shirts worn by Steve Clarke’s squad* against the Premier League champions.
To make each jersey even more collectable, we'll get the player who wore it to sign it – both on the front and back. The shirts also come complete with an authentication sticker and official certificate.
Most importantly, all proceeds from the auctions will go to The Albion Foundation.
The auctions are set to close on Tuesday, October 30 at 10pm.
Albion’s players have also been attempting to break world records in an effort to raise funds for, and awareness of, The Albion Foundation – and we’ve got the hilarious footage for you to view!
Marc-Antoine Fortune and Youssouf Mulumbu feature in our first video as they each tried to butter ten slices of toast in less than 47.79 seconds.
This footage will be available to view as soon as donations to the charity reach £250. For further details on how to donate or, to watch a promotional video, click here
As soon as the first of our four videos go live, the next video in the chain will become active and a new fundraising target will need to be met before it becomes available to view.
The second video will see Jonas Olsson take on Markus Rosenberg in an all-Swedish affair. The pair attempted to eat as many Smarties as they could in one minute – with chopsticks, while blindfolded!
Video three will see Ben Foster and Liam Ridgewell aim to eat as many peas as possible with a toothpick in one minute.
The final video features Chris Brunt and Gareth McAuley trying to eat a muffin as quickly as possible.
Rob Lake, director of The Albion Foundation, was pleased with how the supporters got behind the various Albion Foundation Day activities on Saturday and praised the club for their backing.
“I would like to say a huge thank you to the club, principal sponsor Zoopla and the fans for their support on Saturday,” he said.
“We have definitely raised the profile of the work we are conducting in the community and Saturday proved that football can make a real, positive difference.
“We sincerely hope the supporters will now get involved in the shirt auction and world record attempt donations so that we can raise further funds to help us continue our crucial work.”

*Supporters should note that Ben Foster's goalkeeper jersey does not feature in the shirt auction. As announced at Saturday’s game, the ‘No.1’ top has been set aside for the person who makes the highest individual donation to The Albion Foundation.
