Badshot Lea Football Club made supporters a good offer before Christmas – don’t pay an admission fee, turn up with a toy instead and watch the match for free.
Josh Pound, who has been with the Baggies for 15 years and came through the club’s youth set-up, said: “We were very humbled by the youngsters whose medical conditions meant they were in hospital over Christmas.”
Team-mate Adam New, also a Baggies player for 15 years and a key member of the promotion-chasing squad, said: “It was a very moving experience to see the children’s eyes light up when they saw the wrapped presents.”
Nick Medcraft made up a trio of players to travel to the hospital, alongside club chairman Mark Broad.
