#AlbionAdvent: Heggs & Taylor celebrate in style

8 December 2015

Day eight of our Christmas Advent Calendar

Some players work for hours on goal celebrations, others score so many, they treat it as a normal event. Into Camp A we place Carl Heggs, in Camp B, Bob Taylor.
 
When Heggs got to make his Albion debut, he was so excited he asked Taylor if, should he score, they could do a special celebration. 

Bob looked at him as if he was mad, said yes and then promptly forgot about it.


 
And it came to pass that Heggs came on and scored in the 4-0 Autoglass Trophy win over Walsall in January 1993. 
 
Vaguely remembering his promise, Taylor ran towards Heggs whereupon they looked at each other, realised they had nothing rehearsed, lunged at each other and, from out of nowhere, a modern art sculpture was born.
 
Turn that into a statue if you please.
