ALBION coach Bjorn Hamberg has admitted that the club’s coaching staff are “proud” of the season’s achievements.

Combined with Graham Potter and Billy Reid, first-team coach Hamberg watched on from the touchline as Albion managed their highest-ever top-flight finish, secured a club record of 12 Premier League wins and scored 41 goals.

Hamberg enjoyed a very intense season in which he the only member of staff to witness every minute of the season in person as he took charge of the 1-1 draw at Leicester City when Graham and Billy Reid were self-isolating.

He has now said that looking back on such a great season is crucial.

The Swede told BHAFC: “It’s important to enjoy the good moments like we have had this year.

“We always want to improve, but enjoying the highs, as well as experiencing some lows, keeps you on track.

“It helps us during the low moments to think of the good times we’ve had and have that process of improvement in mind, and when you win, it’s nice to try to enjoy the results together.

“I think you should enjoy every win, whether you are a player or a member of staff, because that’s what we do this for. There were some great moments this year and we are really proud of them all.”

Hamberg’s top moment of the season was Albion’s 4-0 thrashing of Manchester United.

“That day at the Amex was special,” said Hamberg. “Obviously it happened quite recently so it’s fresh in our memory, but I think the crowd and atmosphere that game was the best I’ve ever been involved in.

“Hopefully we can have more days like that together. West Ham was another great win and atmosphere, so we hope the fans are starting to get that buzz back at home.

“We want to provide our fans with wins like these more often, and hopefully turn the Amex into something special next season.”
