When was your first game? What was the score? What can you remember about the game? 

My first game was Kerry Mayo’s testimonial, I remember a future Albion player Leroy Lita scoring a hat trick! 

Who was your first Albion idol? 

Andrew Crofts, incredible footballer and an incredible man. I had the pleasure of meeting him on numerous occasions.

What is your favourite Albion game and why? 

My favourite Albion game was either the 5-0 win against Norwich, or the 3-2 Manchester United win, both at home.

Which season stands out as your favourite? 

Hard to pick from two. Either the season we got promoted to the Premier League, or the season following promotion from League One.

Which are your favourite Albion home and away shirts? 

My favourite home shirt would be from the 11/12 season, and favourite away shirt would have to be the current one.

What is your all-time Albion XI? 

Ryan; Bruno, Dunk, Duffy, Bong; Stephens, Crofts, Kayal; Vicente, Murray, Barnes.
