West Bromwich Albion are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of former player Alec Jackson, aged 86.

The Tipton-born winger enjoyed a decade at The Hawthorns from 1954 to 1964, scoring 52 goals in 208 appearances for the Baggies, before continuing his career at Birmingham City and later, Walsall.

The club will pay tribute to Alec with a minute’s applause prior to kick-off on Saturday, with Carlos Corberán’s men wearing black armbands as a further mark of respect.

Albion send their heartfelt condolences to Alec’s wife, June, and sons, Andrew and Neil, at this desperately sad time.
