Holy Saturday at The Hawthorns

Perhaps five is a little young for your introduction to Premier League footie, but I think our eldest grandchild will remember his trip up the M5 nevertheless. William and I saw West Bromwich Albion win this afternoon - or at least saw the first of their three goals. (It's being well celebrated here, notwithstanding it was in fact a Blackburn own goal.) 45 minutes was enough - it was a longish walk back to the car, and good to avoid the crush at the end.

The Hawthorns clearly welcomes families in its spacious, modern East stand. There were plenty of helpful marshals, and no sign of any trouble or abuse - a happy outing! And we paid a visit to Tewkesbury Abbey's Easter tableau on the way.
