Press Pass initiative continues to thrive

Pupils prosper from Albion Foundation media partnership

READ all about it, read all about it...Albion's Press Pass initiative is alive and well!

The Albion Foundation linked up with the club's media team at the start of the season with the aim of offering two local school pupils the chance to report on each home game and get the full matchday media experience.

We've brought you extracts of their match reports throughout the campaign - and Laura Toal and Elyese Thompson, Year 11 students at Wodensborough Ormiston Academy, were the latest to take their seat in the press box for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash against Aston Villa.

The encounter may have been goalless but the pair still managed to capture a flavour of the afternoon. To read their match report, click here.

Yasmin Bavington and Findley Mascall, pupils at Sandwell Academy school, are next to test their journalistic skills alongside the professionals in Saturday's FA Cup fourth-round tie against Peterborough United.
