#AlbionAdvent: We salute you Tommy Glidden

12 December 2015

Day 12 of our Christmas Advent Calendar

Perhaps the most iconic Albion photograph of them all, from perhaps the greatest day in our history.

Wembley Stadium, 25 April 1931, and skipper Tommy Glidden clutches the FA Cup which his side have just won by defeating First Division Birmingham 2-1 in torrential rain.

A week and two wins later and we were securing promotion to the First Division and a place of our own in English football history, the only side to complete that unique double.
