Wile, Robertson And Batson Stage Baggies Legends Night At New Road

Worcestershire CCC are holding another of their renowned football 'Legends' nights at New Road next month with West Brom trio John Wile, Ally Robertson and Brendon Batson in the spotlight.

They will be recalling the highlights of their memorable careers in the Graeme Hick Pavilion on Thursday May 4 (7.30pm).

The event follows on from last month's successful Aston Villa 'Legends' evening with Nigel Spink and Tony Morley.

Wile made 619 senior appearances for the Baggies between 1970 and 1983 after moving from Peterborough United and was club captain.

He also had a spell as managing director at the Hawthorns from 1997 to 2002.

His defensive partner for much of his time with West Brom was Robertson clocked up in excess of 500 appearances for the club.

Robertson also had a spell as manager of Worcester City after hanging up his boots in 1990.

Right-back Batson played under Ron Atkinson at Cambridge and then followed him to the Hawthorns.

He made 172 league appearances between 1978 and 1982 for Albion.

Batson became deputy CEO of the PFA as well as a registered agent and campaigned tirelessly against racism in the game.

He was awarded an MBE in 2001 and an OBE in 2015.

The evening will be hosted by BBC Hereford-Worcester broadcaster Dave Bradley and the trio will take part in a Q and A session during the latter part of the evening.

A raffle and auction will also take place with some exciting prizes up for grabs, including coveted WBA memorabilia courtesy of Dave Morgan from Mementos Memorabilia.
