West Brom Honours

West Brom have a proud history that has seen the club win some of the biggest honours in English football. The highlight of their history is the First Division title that they won in the 1919/20 season, winning the league title with a nine-point gap between themselves and runners-up Burnley in a time where teams earned just two points for a win instead of three like today. That remains the only time they have won the First Division/Premier League title, but they have won the FA Cup five times. Their first came in 1888 when they beat Preston 2-1 in the final, before winning their second against Aston Villa in 1892. The Baggies had to wait 39 years for their next FA Cup, beating Birmingham in the 1931 final before again defeating Preston in 1954. West Brom’s most recent FA Cup victory came in 1968 via a 1-0 win over Everton, while they have also been runners-up a further five times.

The club made the League Cup final three times in five years between 1966 and 1970 but emerged victorious just once, doing so in 1966 in the last-ever League Cup final to be decided over two legs when they beat West Ham 5-3 on aggregate. West Brom are also three-time winners of the Second Division/Championship in their history, with the first two coming back in the 1901/02 and 1910/11 seasons. The most recent Championship title came in 2007/08 when they were promoted alongside Stoke and Hull. Their trophy cabinet is complete with two Charity Shields, the Tennent Caledonian Cup and the Watney Cup.

West Brom History

West Bromwich Albion Football Club was founded in 1878 and became a founding member of the Football League ten years later in 1888. The club was originally known as West Bromwich Strollers, but changed to their current-day name in 1880, becoming the first English club to use the ‘Albion’ suffix in the process. West Brom enjoyed success early on, winning the FA Cup and First Division title within the first 30 years of their existence. For the vast majority of their history the club has played in one of the top two divisions of the English football pyramid.

No player has played more times for the Baggies in all competitions than Tony Brown, who turned out 720 times for the club during his career. He is joined in the top three for appearances by Ally Robertson and John Wile. Brown, who won both the League Cup and FA Cup during his time at The Hawthorns, is also the club’s all-time leading goalscorer with 279 to his name.
