SYNOPSIS

West Bromwich Albion Football Club is one of the oldest in the world. Founder-members of the Football League in 1888, Albion have always been closely associated with the growth of the game into today's multi-million pound business.

ALBION! A Complete Record of West Bromwich Albion FC 1879-1987 sets out to record in great detail the club's story since that day in Victorian times when some young cricketers from George Salter's works in West Bromwich decided to form a football team. And that team became West Bromwich Albion.

There are the dates, results, attendances, Albion teams and scorers of every first-team competitive match involving League, FA Cup, League Cup, European matches and Wartime soccer, as well as details of every friendly and tour match since 1879.

Biographies of the stars down the years, every Albion manager, Memorable Matches, a history of the Club and its home grounds, are just a few of the many fascinating features and statistics in this superbly illustrated book which is probably the most detailed history of a football club ever produced.
