Albion Stars: Adam Smith

11 September 2018

'Albion Stars' looks to recognise and reward those Baggies who have gone above and beyond in their support of Albion, or who have been experiencing a tough time and so deserve an extra special surprise.

This is Adam's story...

Despite suffering from autistim and learning difficulties, 19-year-old Adam Smith has worked closely with The Albion Foundation for the past seven years.

Joining as a participant, Adam has progressed to a coaching role after making such a positive impact in his time with the charity.

A keen volunteer, and goalkeeper for our pan-disability team, 'Smithy' is the "perfect example of not letting your disability hold you back".

That's according to Paul Glover, Disability Development Manager at The Albion Foundation, who made sure his pal Adam was in for a treat last week.

In a secret plot, Paul pulled up at Palm Training Ground for Adam to "jump out and drop off a parcel". In fact, he was met by First Team Goalkeeping Coach Neil Cutler and invited to train with his Baggies heroes for the morning.

Stopping shots with Sam, Boaz and 'Bondy' - in special gloves provided by PUMA - Adam had a day to remember. And he even received a signed shirt for his troubles.

Watch the above video to see how a memorable day unfolded.

If you know an Albion Star who you would like to nominate, you can do so by emailing stars@wbafc.co.uk with the details of who you're putting forward and why.
