The matchday programme is back with a bang on Saturday, with a number of must-read features that will take you well beyond your 90 minutes of football at the Amex.

Today's edition of the programme is available at the stadium in the build up to kick-off and online.

This issue we are celebrating Black History Month and catch up with trailblazer Brendon Batson, who was the first black footballer to play for our opponents Arsenal. We also speak to former Albion forward Maheta Molango, who tells us about his remarkable journey from Withdean, to Spain, and on to his recent appointment as chief executive of the PFA.

Closer to home, Tariq Lamptey talks about his own long journey, from the treatment table to being back in the Albion first team, while Danny Welbeck looks back on his time with the Gunners and reveals why the Seagulls have made such a solid start to the season.

Elsewhere, Casper Ankergren looks back on his 11-year career with the club, ahead of his return to Brondby, while women’s and girls’ general manager Polly Bancroft tells us more about the new training facility now open at Lancing.

Our Albion Internationals series features Andrew Crofts, who has fond memories of playing for the late Gary Speed with Wales and reveals why the ‘land of his grandfather’ has helped on his journey to becoming a top coach.

The ever-popular pull-out poster this issue features hero of the hour, Neal Maupay, who also recalls his last-gasp equaliser at Selhurst Park on Monday.

For all this and much more, make sure you pick up issue 5 of the matchday programme at the Amex Stadium, priced £3.50. You can also purchase issues of all Albion matchday programmes this season online here.
