Club Captain Jed Wallace led Albion’s players on a Christmas mission to bring festive joy to the patients and hard-working staff at Sandwell General Hospital on Tuesday afternoon.

Conor Townsend, Kyle Bartley and Adam Reach joined the skipper in spending time with children, their families and hospital staff - as well as helping to distribute early presents.

And Jed said it was special to help put “smiles on the faces” of those at the hospital, despite the difficult time they are all facing.

He said: “As a father of three young children, it’s hard to imagine what these kids and their families are going through, especially at Christmas. 

“Seeing the smiles on the faces of everyone involved has been really rewarding and it’s our pleasure to pop in with some presents and help to spread some Christmas cheer. 

“It’s quite special to know that the club’s players have been coming here for more than 90 years – and we’re all honoured to be continuing that tradition.  

“We’ve met some wonderful children, parents, guardians and hospital staff and I really hope they are all able to enjoy as much of a normal Christmas as possible.”
