WEST BROMWICH ALBION
This fine club began life in 1878, and were one of the founding members of the original Football League in 1888.
Down the years they have achieved success in all the major English trophies, most notably winning the F.A. Cup 5 times. The Baggies added a League title in 1920 and the League Cup in 1966.
Arguably West Brom's finest player, JEFF ASTLE, played a major part in their last big triumph. He scored in every round of the run to the 1968 F.A. Cup Final, and topped it off by scoring the winner against Everton at Wembley.
He also plays a big role on my collage as he leads the way over some fantastic West Brom memories and memorabilia!
Here he is below, and look out for these other bits on the collage as well ...
|Jeff Astle bagged 174 goals in 361 games for the Baggies.|
|Cool retro pin badges from the 1970s, although the top one could be a little older?|
|Classic vintage football programme, with a giant West Brom player booting a ball at the Hawthorns! The Baggies won this match in 1962 against Man City 2-1.|
Next up will be the final part of this Midlands quartet, BIRMINGHAM CITY.
