Albion stars bring smiles to The Lighthouse

Albion players with The football memories group at The Lighthouse was pleased to be joined at their weekly get together by two West Bromwich Albion stars on Thursday 11th September.

The discussion, which was led by Chairman of West Bromwich Albion Supporters Club, John Homer, saw first-team players James Morrison and Boaz Myhill share both personal and professional stories of their favourite Albion matches with members of the group, and told how the game of football had them both hooked from a young age. The afternoon was particularly close to the heart of Boaz who briefly shared that his grandmother suffers with Alzheimer's.

David Hipgrave, Staff Nurse and Co-Ordinator of the Football Memories Group said: "It was really exciting for us to get first team players to attend our group and nice to get a modern perspective on the game.

These guys love football and their beloved Albion and the enjoyment felt by our service users at seeing these players is clear from the delight on their faces.  For people attending this group, talking about football lifts their spirits, stimulates memories and promotes wellbeing. I can't thank John and the players enough for taking time out to share their thoughts and stories with members of the group."
