We saw team come out on to West Bromwich balcony

READING the article on West Bromwich winning the FA Cup, here are my memories.

My father, along with a group of business friends, went to Wembley to see the match - my mother took my school friend Pat Gough and me to the Theatre Royal in Birmingham to see Oklahoma.

Returning home on the bus to West Bromwich, we inquired as to how the team had got on. Well, imagine our joy, we had won.

On the Sunday when the team returned home, we had a vantage point opposite the Town Hall so that when the players came out on to the balcony, we could give them a good cheer.

Many years after my late husband was chatting to Jimmy Dudley who was telling him about the paltry amount they received for winning the Cup.

How times have changed, but as always Up the Baggies.
