Albion Blind are ready to go in the season’s showpiece event as they go up against Merseyside in the FA Blind Cup Final tomorrow.

Taking place at St George’s Park, the trophy was the only piece of silverware the team missed out on last year.

Albion and Head Coach, Paul Glover, will be hopeful of bringing home a second cup for the season, after they were victorious in the National League Cup back in April.

“It’s been a good season and it would be nice to finish it off with a second trophy,” said Paul.

“We missed out on this one last year and we really want to put that right.

“To get to the final was a massive test but we’re really looking forward to it,” he said.

Fresh off the back of a confidence-growing campaign in the Bučovice Blind Cup, Glover’s men will be hoping to go one better than last year in the FA’s showpiece event in blind football.

"It’s kept us lively, it’s kept us training. They’re all really looking forward to it and were sharp all the way through the tournament,” Glover said.

“It will have helped with some problem-solving and I think that should hopefully come into fruition tomorrow,” he also mentioned.

The side will be cheered on by a handful of Baggies fans and Glover thinks that support will help to spur the team on.

“It’s really important to the lads, they don’t get to play in front of Albion fans too often so it will be a real positive for them,” said Paul.

The final kicks off at 2:30pm tomorrow at St George's Park.
