Team Zolly wrote their names into the history books with a famous victory over Team Igor to lift the first ever WBA 6-A-Side-Championship trophy.
Zoltan Gera led his side to a narrow win over Igor Balis’ boys in Sunday’s final after a titanic Twitter battle.
Gera’s team-mates Paul Crichton, Ray Wilson, Martin Albrechtsen, Matheus Pereira and Romelu Lukaku secured 51 per cent of the final vote on the online poll, edging out Igor’s side which included Tomasz Kuszczak, Neil Clement, Filip Krovinovic, Youssouf Mulumbu and Cyrille Regis who pulled in 49 per cent.
The WBA 6-A-Side Championship, which was hosted on the Club’s Twitter account, included 16 teams of six Albion players past and present with supporters voting for their favourite throughout the group stages and knockout rounds.
In total, there were close to 15,000 votes including over 1,500 in the final.
Thank you to all those who participated in the tournament and a big congratulations to Team Zolly who’ll now set their sights on defending their crown.
A quick reminder to all Albion fans to stay at home, protect the NHS and help save lives. Thank you.
