Albion announce Saddlers summer friendly

Baggies travel to the Banks's Stadium on July 26

ALBION can announce they will face neighbours Walsall in a pre-season friendly on Wednesday, July 26.

The Baggies will make the short trip to the Banks's Stadium to face their local League One opponents, who finished their 2016/17 campaign last Sunday in 14th place.

The summer fixture (ko 7.45pm) is the first to be confirmed as part of Albion's pre-season plans for 2017/18 as the club gear up for an eighth consecutive campaign in the Premier League.

Tony Pulis' squad will also take on Championship outfit Burton Albion in a separate pre-season encounter at the Pirelli Stadium at the same time. For more details, click here.

Albion recorded a 2-0 triumph when they last faced the Saddlers in a friendly in 2015.

Ticket details for each of this summer's fixtures will be announced in due course along with further details of the club's pre-season plans.
