New West Brom head coach Steve Clarke is intent on repaying the faith of the club in giving him his first shot as a number one.
After 14 years coaching and being assistant to the likes of Jose Mourinho, the late Sir Bobby Robson and Kenny Dalglish, the 48-year-old Scot finds himself in charge for the first time.
"The chairman and Dan Ashworth did a terrific job in selling the club's project to me and I fully aim to repay the board's faith," he said. "The team and supporters have had some good times in recent years and, with their help, I would like to think those good times can continue following my appointment."
