A special edition issue of Seagull, Albion’s matchday programme, has been produced ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup fourth round tie with Arsenal, and is available now from the Amex Store.
The bumper edition features a host of Albion stars past and present including Liam Brady, Steve Gatting, Leo Ulloa, Ashley Barnes, Rohan Ince and Inigo Calderon.
Cover star Calde takes a look back at our fourth round encounter with the Gunners back in 2013, while the Albion goalscorers that day, Ulloa and Barnes, recall their memories of the tie and tell us about life in the Premier League with Leicester and Burnley respectively.
Arsenal forward Theo Walcott says he’s not underestimating Chris Hughton’s side in an exclusive interview, while Alan Curbishley and Garry Nelson take a trip down memory lane, recalling the Gunners’ last visit to the Goldstone in 1988.
There’s a double club connection in the programme, with Arsenal legend Brady recalling his spell as Albion boss during the turbulent mid-Nineties, likewise his FA Cup Final exploits with the Gunners, while Steve Gatting remembers his playing days at the Goldstone and Highbury, and the 1983 FA Cup Final against Manchester United.
