West Bromwich Albion are back in action this weekend at The Valley, less than a week after playing there against Charlton Athletic in the FA Cup.
The league campaign is the priority for the Baggies this season with them in a strong position and looking capable of earning promotion back into the Premier League.
Indeed, that was reflected in the team selection that Slaven Bilic made against the Addicks in the Cup with a few younger players getting their chance to shine.
They impressed, too, and it is clear that the club is doing good work at youth level to produce and coach some good young footballers.
In more positive news for the Baggies’ youth set-up, too, the U18 side beat Middlesbrough in the FA Youth Cup last night with a pretty one-sided win:
Well done lads!
