West Brom: Fans buzzing at seeing Rico Richards in pre-season training

West Brom: Fans buzzing at seeing Rico Richards in pre-season training - West Bromwich Albion News

The West Bromwich Albion squad has reconvened for pre-season training ahead of their return to the Championship. 

New manager Valerien Ismael, appointed following the departure of Sam Allardyce, has the chance to begin implementing his ideas.

The Baggies are looking to bounce back after amassing only 26 points over the course of 38 Premier League games last season, leaving them 19th in the final table, 13 points adrift of safety.

The club’s official social media channels have been posting images of the preparations getting underway in the Midlands, and one of those showed forward Callum Robinson in action, with the caption ‘fit and firing’.

Intriguingly, in the background of the shot, 17-year-old defender Rico Richards is visible.

Richards could make next step after impressing for West Brom youth

His involvement in the senior session perhaps bodes well for the teenager’s chances of making a first team debut during the 2021/22 season.

The attacking midfielder shone for the under-18s last season with seven goals in 13 appearances and that form saw him fast-tracked into the under-23s, for whom he played 15 matches.

Upon noticing him participating in first team training, these Baggies fans erupted with excitement:
