OVER 500 kids took part in the Premier League Kicks Cup yesterday, including two teams representing West Bromwich Albion.
Premier League Kicks is an initiative to provide free football sessions for kids from deprived neighbourhoods to raise their aspirations and provide life experiences that they wouldn't otherwise be able to get.
Take a look at the gallery above to see our teams in action.
Albion’s boys team managed to reach the semi-final stage of the tournament, whilst the girls team were unfortunate not to make it out of the group stage.
88 teams were involved in the day, with 64 teams taking part and 24 girls teams entering the tournament.
Around England and Wales, Albion are one of 69 clubs delivering Premier League Kicks sessions.
The Albion Foundation currently delivers ten core sessions of free football at seven different venues available to the public.
On top of this, the charity runs Mini Kicks sessions and a multi-sports school based offer, taking the tally of Kicks sessions to over 20.
The Foundation offers seven venues worth of free football, which accounts for a small percentage of the 911 venues that are delivering the sessions across England and Wales, with 245,845 young people taking part in the project since 2006.
During this time, there have been 6,252 competitions delivered, 44,204 females engaged and 22,412 qualifications achieved nationally.
