AWARD-winning James Birks has been named as Fans’ Champion for Saturday’s clash against Liverpool.
Aged 13, James was involved in a car accident, leaving him fighting for his life and unable to speak for 18 months after the incident.
Since then, the Albion-mad 18 year-old has become an integral part of The Albion Foundation's powerchair football team and was named Manager's Player of the Year at the charity's annual disability awards.
"I can't believe I got it," said James on his gong.
"I was thinking 'come on, I really want an award'."
