Sam Field, 19, started the match while fellow teenagers Rekeem Harper and Kane Wilson were on the bench, with Harper replacing Field after 70 minutes.

With regard to conversations with club chairman John Williams, the Welshman mentioned having spoken "at great length over the summer", knowing the direction needed that together they "are determined to do". Everybody from around the football club is waiting for them to come in.

"We only have 17 senior pros so we need to and we've got a few at the top age so it just needs restructuring".

"But I know where I am, I've been managing clubs at the bottom end of it financially for years".

"I thought the fans were fantastic today".

Hegazi caught the eye of coach Tony Pulis during the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year, in which the centre-back helped Egypt to a runners-up finish. The Midlands outfit endured woeful form in the second half of last season and have followed it up with more poor results in pre-season.

Bournemouth were typically tidy in possession but lacked a cutting edge up from as Hegazi and Dawson marshalled the home defence well.

This included two chances in the last five minutes when first Hal Robson-Kanu did brilliantly to take down Jake Livermore's pass but then fired his shot over the bar on the turn.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis says his squad is not strong enough despite beating Bournemouth 1-0.

English professional football club, West Brom, has entered into its first-ever shirt-sleeve sponsorship deal with sports betting and online casino, 12BET.

West Brom were much the better side and made their dominance pay in the 31st minute as Chris Brunt swung a right-wing free-kick to the back post, where Hegazi rose to head through the legs of Begovic and in.
