Marc Albrighton fronts Saturday's Albion News

Middlesborough programme cover

January addition Marc Albrighton tells several intriguing stories from his career and early tenure at The Hawthorns in this weekend's Albion News. 

With success in domestic and European tournaments during his playing days, the Premier League-winner's feature is not one to miss!

Marc's memorable moments are star-studded with enjoyable experiences most pros only dream of in their career, from helping Leicester win England's oldest cup competition, to the underdog story of City's title-winning campaign.

Lifting the Community Shield and scoring in the UEFA Champions League also feature in a number of stellar achievements for Marc, but, of course, all the talk around his move to the Baggies takes centre stage.

The Sky Bet Championship has already provided Albion's recent loan signing with a few lessons to be learned, as the versatile midfielder details in his feature-length interview. 

But Albrighton openly admits he could've done more in some of his appearances since moving to the Black Country, and insists he's focused on making the desired impact ahead some crucial fixtures for the Baggies.

The 33-year-old ends his chat by drawing comparisons between former boss Claudio Ranieri and Albion Head Coach Carlos Corberán, with their attention to detail a key aspect which gives Marc and his team-mates, in his words, "no excuses" due to the rigorous work done by the coaching staff ahead of each game.  

Boss Corberán provides his usual instalment in the manager's section of this weekend's Albion News, with "momentum" and building it up again very much at the forefront of the Spaniard's mind. 

His notes discuss the difficult result in Hertfordshire on Monday night, but with further emphasis on the training pitch this week, along with the prospect of another big crowd at The Hawthorns for Saturday's meeting with in-form Boro, the gaffer hopes a positive showing and result in B71 could be the catalyst his side needs to kick on up the table.

U18s boss Leigh Downing's first of three academy interviews takes over in the youth-team section, as the Lead Development Phase Coach discusses his first year in charge of the club's scholars, new arrivals, and much more ahead of a congested end to the season for his team.

There’s plenty for Albion supporters to get into, and programmes will be available at all the usual stalls in and around The Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon. They can also be purchased from the Stadium Megastore, which is located outside the East Stand.
