The Celebration Statue, depicting club legends Laurie Cunningham, Cyrille Regis and Brendon Batson, has been years in the making and will finally be unveiled after a huge fundraising effort.

The 10ft bronze statue will be set up outside New Square Shopping Centre at around 11.30am.

Members of Cyrille and Laurie’s families will be present as well as former West Brom teammates.

It will be unveiled by PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor.

There had been doubts about whether the statue would ever come the fruition but a breakthrough came last year when the Professional Footballers' Association donated £38,000 needed to complete it.
