West Brom fans have got a lot to be excited about at the moment. It looks an awful lot like the Baggies’ immediate future will be spent in the Premier League, as Slaven Bilic has them set for promotion, but in the longer-term future, The U21 side at The Hawthorns is also doing very well.
We’re through to the next round!

That was clear for all to see in the week. West Brom’ U21 side recorded a fantastic 4-1 over their Middlesbrough equivalents in the FA Youth Cup, and now they’ll have to wait for the draw to see who they’ll be up against in the 5th round of the competition.
It will be something that the fans will certainly be keeping one eye firmly focused on. Promotion to the Premier League is certainly the main aim of the club this season, but whenever the youth have a chance to shine it’s something that fans keep a keen eye on, and this is no different.
