A new book, Where Seagulls Soar, is on sale now and celebrates the amazing moments Albion and its fans have shared throughout the historic first decade at the American Express Community Stadium.
Most of the pictures have been captured by club photographer Paul Hazlewood. The book has been designed to sit alongside Paul’s three other titles - Stadium Yes!, Living the Dream and We’re On Our Way - and tells the story of the club’s progress during an epic first ten years in our long-awaited new home.
The book showcases the battle to first achieve promotion to the Premier League, and then the record-breaking retention of top-flight status. It also acknowledges many other prestigious events the stadium has hosted, which have helped to make it such an integral part of the community and contains many previously unseen photographs from Paul’s extensive archive.
The stunning imagery is accompanied by forewords from Tony Bloom, Martin Perry and club captain Lewis Dunk, who played in the official opening match against Tottenham Hotspur and the epic first league game at the Amex against Doncaster Rovers.
