Albion squad in community appearances

Baggies players involved in community day across region

ALBION’s entire first-team squad took part in their first community day of the season on Tuesday.

Twenty four Baggies players were involved in a series of fun-filled activities in the local community alongside The Albion Foundation.

It was an enjoyable afternoon for the West Bromwich Albion Ladies as they filmed a special promotion to launch their sponsorship deal with Maple Syrup, a company originating from Canada. Ben Foster, Boaz Myhill and Craig Gardner were on hand alongside Ladies players Summer Holmes and Harley Simpson to launch the deal.

Other Baggies players were allocated school visits across the Black Country and Birmingham. 

Highlights included Craig Dawson, Callum McManaman and Saido Berahino participating in a PE lesson at Ferndale Primary School before taking part in a Q&A session with students and signing autographs. 

Meanwhile, James Morrison, Academy graduate Sam Field and summer signing Allan Nyom visited RSA Academy to take part in a quickfire quiz and Q&A session with their football team. 

Albion Foundation director Rob Lake said: “It is fantastic to see the players out of their comfort zone and taking the time to visit the local schools. 

“This adds value to the Foundation’s programmes and to see the looks on the faces of kids when they see their heroes is priceless.”
