EIGHT lucky primary school pupils were given a matchday VIP experience to remember on Albion Cares Day.
The children, all from local schools, enjoyed a behind-the-scenes tour of the training ground, met Tony Pulis and the club's first-team squad at The Hawthorns, went on stage in the Fanzone and even played on the pitch at half-time in last weekend's home clash against Southampton.
It was all part of the Premier League's Primary Stars initiative, which aims to inspire children - aged 5-11 - to learn, be active and develop important life skills in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field.
The Albion Foundation have so far worked with 88 different primary schools on this initiative and have already recognised some stars of their own.
The eight lucky children, who were chosen from over 5,000 pupils, were:
Ashley from Glebefields Primary School, Tipton
Ashton from Ocker Hill Academy, Tipton
Luke from Tividale Community Primary School, Tividale
Marshall from Galton Valley Primary School, Smethwick
Mckenzie from Moat Farm Junior School Trust, Oldbury
