Meeting at 11.30 the families were able to join other specially selected guests at the Hawthorns where they were treated to a gorgeous hot lunch before the main event which was a meet the player's session. The West Brom footballers were once again at their most welcoming and the families involved were able to meet and talk with their idols, autographs were gathered, football shirts signed and long lasting memories were made.

After the meet the player's session all our families were invited to take seats in the football ground where they were able to join fans of the club watching as the players worked of their lunch being put through their paces at a special training session.

The wonderful Jamie has produced this video blog of his day which includes a wonderful interview with England Goalkeeper Ben Foster, I would urge you all to take a look at the Interview and I hope it gives you as much joy as it bought to this reporter and more importantly Jamie himself

Once again Max Appeal sends its heartfelt thanks to all the players and staff of West Bromwich Albion football club for hosting our families.
