Peace Out To Improve The Hawthorns

Peace Out To Improve The Hawthorns

In this season of goodwill, given we've survived quite handsomly, Jeremy Peace has outlined plans for The Hawthorns and the future of the club.

Speaking to the crowd at the end of season Gala Awards Dinner last night, Peace told fans we'd earnt the right to reflect on a memorable season, but whilst enjoying ourselves over the summer the hard work must begin to completely established the Baggies as a Premiership force.

His full speech is available on the above link, I'll simply pick the bones of it.

'I think it's fantastic that the Club has achieved its goal this season of retaining its status with games to spare. However, it's well documented how many promoted clubs who stay up suffer from second season syndrome - as we found out to our cost in 2005/06. Therefore, suvivial must be this Club's watchword again next season.'

Peace went on to laud the finer moments this season brought, a record points haul, the demolishing of hoodoo's over Arsenal, Villa, Everton and Liverpool and he quickly paid tribute the the fantastic support of the fans - especially during the more butt clenching moments we had, although as you understand he didn't quite phrase it like that!

Moving on to playing matters, Peace praised the development and medical work the club has been involved in, leading to more injury prevention and players spending less time out when injured. On that score, the club will over the summer be instigating more works at the training ground to install hydrotherapy facilities.

The work doesn't end there, as over the summer the pitch will also be levelled and will see the introduction of a Desso surface.

(Am I the only one running to Google to find out what that is?)

In capacity news, the club is committed to raising the cap of The Hawthorns to around the 30,000 level over the next 3 seasons, and this is work that will be undertaken irrespective of divisional status.

Please read the full transcript for greater details, but there we go, it's looks like it's going to be a busy summer in both on and off pitch matters as the club strives to improve.
