Solihull 3 Albion XI 2

Baggies defeated at Damson Park

ALBION'S development squad fell to a late 3-2 defeat at Solihull Moors in a pre-season friendly this evening.

Alex Jones fired home a 39th-minute penalty after a trialist opened the scoring for the Baggies midway through the first-half.

But second-half goals from Darryl Knights, Aron Wint and Gary Birch earned the Conference North outfit a victory.

David Oldfield’s side must now prepare for their Barclays U21 Premier League opening day clash with Blackburn on Monday.

ALBION: Rose; Francis, Smart (C Jones HT), O’Neil (Ward HT), D Daniels (Hallaghan HT), Atkinson, O’Sullivan (Wedderburn HT), Birch, A Jones (Leko 59), Hayes, Trialist (Oldnall 77). Sub not used: Palmer (gk).
