Following on from the disturbing scenes at The Hawthorns six days previous, when neighbours Wolverhampton Wanderers knocked Albion out of the Cup, the visit of yet more neighbours, Birmingham City was certainly another high profile ‘local’ attraction, especially as it heralded the return of a, previous ‘local hero’, ‘Blues’ new boss Tony Mowbray, who brought so much joy including Promotion, to The Hawthorns terraces during his tenure.

However the highlight of the afternoon had to be the return of yet another Hawthorns hero, Zoltan Gera, who was the guest of honour in the Richardson Suite, sharing match day duties with Paul Mardon, Paul Raven and Gary Hackett.
In the Regis Suite, Chairman Ray Wilson, Secretary Geoff Snape and Treasurer Norman Westbury were joined by former players Ally Robertson, Nigel Quashie and Dennis Clarke, along with guests from the Professional Footballers Association, and of course the cameo visit from Andy Johnson, who’s timely quote “There points, is three points” summed up the rewarding afternoon.
