West Bromwich Albion response following coin-throwing incident

ALL our true supporters will join the Club in condemning the sickening behaviour of a few individuals at the end of our FA Cup fifth-round tie at Reading.

They will be horrified at the sight of one of our longest-serving players, Chris Brunt, being struck beneath an eye by a coin as he attempted to show the team's appreciation to the travelling fans for their backing during an ultimately disappointing afternoon.

The incident should not be allowed to blacken the good name of West Bromwich Albion and its loyal supporters.

We are working with all the relevant authorities to identify as quickly as possible the offender, who can expect the severest of sanctions by the Club for his actions.

We are now sure all our supporters will be anxious to show the true spirit of the genuine West Bromwich Albion fans for the forthcoming fixtures, beginning against Crystal Palace at The Hawthorns on Saturday.
