"Meeting the players is a dream come true."

ALBION quartet Sam Field, Kieran Gibbs, Allan Nyom and Boaz Myhill visited Portway Lifestyle Centre to get involved with The Albion Foundation’s Half-Term Disability Camp.

“Getting outside and playing with the people that are here has been fantastic,” said Field.  

“It’s put a smile on my face and hopefully it’s put one on theirs too.

“To do something like this is really special and really rewarding.

“Just to enjoy it and see them enjoy it as well is brilliant.”

The appearance from the players and their willingness to immerse themselves into the session was met with gratitude from the participants.

“They like to help others and use the skills they've already got into other people and it makes you feel special,” said one of the attendees.

“It makes you think 'I could actually be like that in the future'.”

Getting to meet their Baggies heroes was an experience that will last long in the memory.

“Today, when I've been meeting one of my favourite players, Kieran Gibbs, he was talking to me and saying 'I can't believe how many saves you've done today'," said one lifelong Albion fan.
