Terry Wills is one of West Bromwich Albion’s best-known supporters. He saw his first Albion match in 1940 and has witnessed over 2,000 more since in almost three quarters of a century of support.
His devotion has been recognised with awards from the Premier League, Sunday Mercury and the Express & Star. Enhanced by over a decade as co-editor of Grorty Dick fanzine, his opinion has long been regularly sought by the local media and more latterly by the football club themselves. Since its inception, Terry has sat on Albion’s Liaison Committee. “Recycled teenager” Terry is rapidly approaching his 80th year and lives in South Birmingham with his wife Dot
In the first 3 parts of his autobiography, veteran West Bromwich Albion supporter Terry Wills remembers the peaks and troughs of supporting the club between 1940 and 1976. His experiences include the dangers of watching football during National Service, the downside of a 16 hour queue for tickets and the joy of four Wembley trips.
