ALBION's players ventured into the local community this week to support The Albion Foundation's projects in the area.

Kieran Gibbs and Jake Livermore received plaudits via email from a delighted parent for their appearance at a pan-disability session at Oldbury Academy.

"It was a fantastic opportunity for the children to meet some of the players," said the happy mum.

"I was amazed by how fantastic they were with the children."

"It was heartwarming to watch."

Elsewhere, Claudio Yacob and Salomon Rondon joined in a Future Baggies session and Chris Brunt went to Boldmere St.Michael's Football Club to visit a Player Development Centre.

Gareth Barry and Oliver Burke joined in at a Kicks session and spoke to the teenagers about their experiences in the game, whilst Ahmed Hegazi and Ali Gabr helped open a new Baggies Skill Centre in Sedgley at The Dormston Centre.

Allan Nyom and Nacer Chadli visited West Bromwich Albion's Girls' Regional Talent Centre, with Daniel Sturridge doing a question and answer with West Bromwich Albion FC Women.

Jay Rodriguez tried his hand at powerchair football, before heading to The Hawthorns to meet the Junior Assembly, a group that allows young supporters to be represented and offer suggestions and ideas to the Club.

Craig Dawson and Alex Palmer attended a Baggies Soccer Centre at Oak Park, with Sam Field and Boaz Myhill going to a Player Development Academy at the Q3 Academy.
