West Bromwich Albion Football Club is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of former Assistant Manager Frank Burrows at the age of 77. 

The Scotsman, who served as No.2 to Gary Megson from 2000 to 2004, helped the Baggies to two Premier League promotions in 2001/02 and 2003/04. 

Megson and Burrows masterminded a sea change in the club’s fortunes on the pitch, taking Albion from Division One relegation battlers to the play-offs in little over a season, before earning promotion to the top-flight for the first time in a generation. 

Albion will pay tribute to Frank prior to Friday night’s Sky Bet Championship fixture against Nottingham Forest and the players will wear black armbands as a mark of respect. 

The club extends its condolences to Frank’s family and friends at this desperately sad time.
