"Albion’s head of football operations David Burke said, “Working closely with our medical and sports science teams, we have put together an ideal pre-season programme, both here in the UK and in a warmer weather climate down in Spain. Our schedule also gives fans some great games to look forward to against high quality opposition as well as the usual tough matches against some of our local rivals.”
