West Brom to reward loyal supporters who made 6,000 mile trip to watch them in Hong Kong with beers

WEST BROM chiefs are set to reward their loyal supporters with a beer in Hong Kong on Friday.

A number of Baggies fans have flown nearly 6,000 miles to watch their team in action over in the Far East this week.

Tony Pulis’ men are competing in the Premier League Asia Trophy and are next in action on Saturday in the third place play-off against Crystal Palace.

They lost their first match on penalties against Leicester City Tuesday, but those followers who made the journey will be able to drown any sorrows they have thanks to the club’s board members.

Chairman John Williams confirmed today that the die-hards who made the long trip will be able to enjoy drinks at the team hotel.

He will be joined by chief executive Martin Goodman and director of football administration Richard Garlick in greeting the away travellers.

Dean Walton is one of those who made the trip to cheer on his side.

He was one of the first to be contacted by the club and is delighted with the gesture.

Walton told the Express and Star: “I’m surprised, but it’s good the club have recognised the fans.

“Particularly following the gestures from Palace and Leicester for their fans over here.”

Palace and the Foxes both hired pubs for their supporters who had travelled to Hong Kong and set up a meet-and-greet with players.

It is still to be confirmed whether boss Pulis or West Brom owner Guochuan Lai will be at the gathering.
