Glenn Murray and Fern Whelan are to become Albion ambassadors.

The pair will represent Albion at a selection of home matches, as well as other club and Albion in the Community events, alongside current ambassadors Bobby Zamora and Alan Mullery.

Murray played for Albion from 2008-11 and 2016-21, scoring 111 goals in 287 appearances for the club.

Whelan joined Albion in 2017 and made 23 appearances for the club before retiring in 2020.

Albion chief executive and deputy chairman Paul Barber said: “We’re delighted to welcome Fern and Glenn as ambassadors. Both bring a real understanding and knowledge of the club, our values and the role we play in the local community.

“Glenn played an important role with the men’s team over the last 15 years prior to hanging up his boots and Fern helped establish the club in the Women’s Super League. We’re really looking forward to working with them.”

Whelan recently started her new role with the PFA.

In April, Fern and her partner Aileen Whelan, who plays for the club, became proud parents after Fern gave birth to their son Jenson.
