Sell-out 300 Dinner a huge success

Brunt sends apologies via video message

ALBION legends gathered at The Hawthorns as the Club celebrated its 300 Dinner - with injured triple centurion Chris Brunt recording a special message for guests.

The Northern Ireland international was due to be guest of honour at the celebration of Albion's 44 most longest-serving servants.

But he was forced to cancel his plans after flying out to Paris to undergo an operation on his injured knee.

Brunt, who recorded his 300th Albion appearance earlier this season, sent his apologies to the sell-out event via a video link-up.

"I would love to have been there but I'm receiving treatment in France," said Brunt.

"Hopefully I can be there the next time we have such an event."

Of the 44 players who belong to Albion's exclusive 300 club, just 18 survive, with 13 attending last night's sell-out night - among with a host of other ex-Albion players.

The dozen 300 Club members who attended were: Tony Brown, Ally Robertson, John Wile, Graham Williams, Cyrille Regis, Bobby Hope,  Bob Taylor, Doug Fraser, John Kaye, Paul Raven, Daryl Burgess, Len Cantello and Ally Brown.

West Bromwich Albion would like to thank all former players and fans who turned out for the event.
