WEST Bromwich Albion Powerchair Football Club topped off a perfect season by clinching the WFA Cup Final to secure the treble.

The Club’s final trophy of three came as part of the FA Disability Cup Finals weekend, with a 1-0 win over Aspire at St George’s Park concluding a magnificent season for the national champions.

Lead by captain and coach Chris Gordon, the Baggies have enjoyed a perfect season after adding the cup to their WFA National Premiership and West Midlands Regional League titles.

“Turning up to St George’s Park is like playing at Wembley for us," he said.

“After a great season winning the WFA National League for the first time in the club's history, we arrived on the day with nothing to lose."

The St George’s Park showpiece saw over 200 tickets sold for the powerchair final as fans poured in to show their support.

“It was great to see so many people in attendance to watch powerchair football being played on the big stage.

“I hope we will be back at St George’s Park next season to try and defend our title.“

It was an incredible experience for Brad Bates, who has only been in Albion’s first team for a season.

“I can’t even put it into words,” he said.

“Winning the treble was incredible and a huge challenge in itself but retaining it will be even more difficult.

“Having a target on our back that we are now the team to beat is a great feeling.”
