History
  Formed in 1878, the club were originally called West Bromwich Strollers after one member walked to Wednesbury to buy a football, before deciding on West Bromwich Albion in 1880. One of the founder members of the Football League in 1888, Albion had to wait until 1919 to win it, although two FA Cup successes whetted the fans' appetite. West Brom went on to lift the FA Cup three more times (1931, 1954, 1968) to secure a proud record in the prestigious competition. First Division regulars for the majority of their history, the Baggies struggled in the late 1980s and were relegated to the Third Division in 1991 - sparking fears that the club would be unable to recover. Successive promotions got West Brom back on track but dreams of a place in the FA Premier League were just that throughout the 1990s. However the club finally reached its goal after pipping rivals Wolves to the second promotion place on the final day of the season - just weeks after the death of former WBA and England striker Jeff Astle.
