"For over 10 years we have developed and evolved a number of recruitment strategies to enhance our Academy. We are passionate about recruiting, developing and producing home grown talent, we see this a vital part of our bloodline to the first team. There has never been a more exciting time to join our Academy, it is clear from the success of last season that Academy players now have a clear pathway to our first team. ​ We ensure that our recruitment department sits at the heart of our programme alongside our coaching department, they are fully integrated and work very closely to ensure when players come into the academy on trial they receive the necessary support to give them the best opportunity to be signed. ​
We have a number of players who joined our Academy at different ages that have developed into first team players. Every player has his own journey and will have been recruited at different stages, that is why it is essential to have a variety of recruitment strategies and opportunities for players to access our programme. ​ We are always searching for the Saido Berahino , Jonathan Leko, Tyler Roberts or Sam Field. I hope you find the website a very useful tool to begin your journey to becoming a West Bromwich Albion FC player." ​ Mark Harrison, Academy Manager.
