Taylor Gardner-Hickman received the perfect 20th birthday present on Thursday - a new four-and-a-half-year contract which keeps him at his boyhood club until at least the summer of 2026.

The Telford-born academy graduate joined the Albion when he was just seven years old, and his dream of representing the senior side became reality in 2021.

Taylor made his debut against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup in August before going on to impress in Sky Bet Championship matches, notably at home to Hull City and away at Coventry City.

It's been an incredible journey for Gardner-Hickman and we've got the pictures to prove it.

Have a look at the exciting youngster's rise up the academy and into the first team. There's 20 photos of the 20-year-old to scroll through.
