MATCH CENTRE: Albion v Norwich City

19 March 2016

Baggies braced for Canaries clash on Foundation Day (3pm ko)

TICKETS remain on general sale to Albion supporters for this afternoon's Barclays Premier League clash against Norwich City, on what is Foundation Day at The Hawthorns.

Seats for the encounter are priced £27/£25 adults, £21/£20 seniors (over-60s), £16/£15 students/under-21s and £10 juniors. They are available from the East Stand ticket office right up until the 3pm kick-off.

The Baggies go into the clash in impressive form having taken 10 points from the last 12 on offer and unbeaten in six league matches on home soil stretching back to last year.

Crystal Palace and Manchester United have both been put to the sword in the club's last two home matches and Tony Pulis will be hoping for another positive result today, which would in turn see his side hit the 40-point mark.

Albion players will be wearing black armbands for the encounter and there will also be a minute's applause in honour of Dave Walsh, one of the most prolific goalscorers in the club's history, who sadly passed away earlier this week at the age of 92. 

Should he be selected against the Canaries, Baggies defender Gareth McAuley will overtake Bob Taylor in becoming the club's oldest outfield player in the Premier League era at the age of 36 years and 105 days.

Looking for the perfect place to soak up the pre-match atmosphere? Then come along to the Fanzone, sponsored by freebets.com, which opens from 12noon.

It's back to the 1990s as the Fanzone goes retro to celebrate 25 years of The Albion Foundation.

To celebrate Foundation Day, Bike Challenge members Bob Taylor and Blind Dave Heeley among others will arrive back at The Hawthorns site at lunchtime having cycled all the way from Norwich to help raise vital funds.

Former Canaries and Albion midfielder Andy Johnson will also be present, performing on stage will be Britpop band 'Marquis Drive' while Everton v Arsenal will be on the giant screen.

Elsewhere, there will be the usual food and drink outlets, along with a bungee run, blind shootout and basketball activities. For full details, click here.
