Shirt Auction raises record-breaking amount

The shirt auction from Albion’s 4-2 victory against Cardiff City on Foundation Day has raised almost £6,000, the highest amount ever raised in an Albion Foundation auction.

Albion’s 18-man squad for the 4-2 victory against Cardiff wore specially-embroidered shirts to mark the occasion, reaching a final figure of £5,824.

Albion fans were willing to empty their pockets to get their hands on the shirt of Brazilian maestro, Matheus Pereira, whose jersey finished on a winning bid of £725.

Local lads Romaine Sawyers and Nathan Ferguson were also popular with Baggies supporters, their shirts coming to £500 and £400 respectively.

Other highlights included Grady Diangana, Jake Livermore and Matt Phillips’ shirts going for £460, £410 and £360 respectively.

All the money raised from the auction has gone towards the Foundation’s bid for a new specialist minibus, used to transport Albion’s disability teams to and from fixtures.

The shirt auction caps off what has been a record-breaking Foundation Day for the charity, with the final total coming to an incredible £18,766.

All money is gratefully received by the Foundation and we thank the Albion family for their incredibly generous support.
