Mowbray eyes new chapter

04 April 2008 12:23
Tony Mowbray his challenged his players to emulate the success of previous West Bromwich Albion teams and write a new chapter in the club's glorious FA Cup history. The Baggies take on Portsmouth aiming for their first cup final appearance in 40 years and Mowbray wants the current side to write their name in Albion folklore. Albion have lifted the FA Cup five times in their history with the last success coming in 1968. "The FA Cup is about having your name stuck on that trophy that teams have played for so many years," Mowbray told the club's official website ahead of Saturday's semi-final. "To have WBA stuck on it again would be pretty special for this group of players. It's great to stick a stamp on a team. "You develop a football team, you see them work every day together and they laugh and joke, they suffer defeat and disappointment and come out of the other end. "Sometimes you want to stick a badge of honour on your team so in 20 years' time it is still remembered and talked about."
