West Bromwich Albion are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of former player Ian Hamilton, aged 55.
The Baggies midfielder made 282 appearances at The Hawthorns between 1992 and 1998, scoring 28 times. He played an important role in Albion's promotion via the Play-Offs from Division Two in 1993, featuring in every league match that season.
Hamilton began his career with Southampton, switching to Cambridge United in 1988 and then Scunthorpe United later that year. He amassed more than 140 games in an Iron shirt before his memorable six-year spell in the Black Country.
He went on to turn out for Sheffield United, Grimsby Town, Notts County, Lincoln City and Woking after leaving the Baggies.
Albion will pay tribute to Ian with a minute’s applause prior to kick-off in their next home fixture against Millwall on Saturday, September 23.
Everyone at the football club sends their heartfelt condolences to Ian's family and friends at this desperately sad time.
