Meet Albion's new first-year scholars

13 July 2018

ALBION are delighted to introduce our new first-year scholars for the 2018/19 season.

The 16-year-old hot prospects have this summer progressed from schoolboy to scholar and will now be based at the club's Palm Training Ground as they take the next step up in their Academy development towards potential first-team involvement.

Academy manager Mark Harrison said: "The most pleasing thing is that the vast majority are local boys who have been with us a long time.

"There's a strong Albion identity already within the group.

"We look forward to seeing how they make the transition from schoolboy to scholar."
