Lambs enjoy Baggies work out
13 July 2013
Tamworth completed their second pre-season run out with a good run-out in a training match behind closed doors at the West Bromwich Albion training ground on Saturday morning.
Dale Belford handed starts to Tony Capaldi and Ben Richards-Everton as The Lambs lined up against a Baggies side comprising a mixture of senior and young pros.
In sweltering conditions on the impressive training facility's no.4 pitch, James Morrison opened the scoring on 16, swivelling neatly from 12 yards to plant new boy Nicolas Anelka's centre into the bottom left-hand corner.
It was 2-0 on 29 when Shane Long headed home Kemar Roofe's back-post cross from the right and that's how it stayed until the half time break.
Baggies boss Steve Clarke made ten changes for the second half and Markus Rosenberg extended the Baggies' lead when he volleyed home Gabriel Tamas' right sided cross on 69.
Saido Berahino completed the scoring six minutes later by tapping home Billy Jones' pull-back.
Thanks to WBA for their hospitality and help compiling the report.
