    I'm from Norton Canes, up the road from Vannock, and have been here since 2005. My husband, Phil, is a Leed's supporter, so quite pleased with yesterday's draw! For the last year or so he has been following Adelaide United, and has really got into them- so there is a bit of 'proper' football over here.

    oh, and i have to say: Go the Villa!!!!! :) (or i will be disowned!)

    Guest Foz in Oz

    Hi Baggienurse - I can confirm there are a few of us long suffering Baggies here in Adelaide. I met most of them through the Midland Expats meet up group - we meet up every 3 or 4 months at Glenelg and there are Villa, Blues, Wolves and Albion fans who attend - I even bought a Wolves fan a pint last time - it must be the sun getting to me.....if you're on Facebook try this link;

     

    Welcome to Facebook

     

    We also tried to set up an Adelaide Baggies Facebook page but something went wrong with the invites and we ended up with about 150 Albion supporting members, very few of which I think live in Adelaide, here is the link but we're gonna have another go and be more careful this time with invites;

     

    Adelaide Baggiz W.B.A. | Facebook

     

    I know of at least half a dozen fans and some Poms at work who play footy say they know Albion fans too, and I've seen plenty of shirts and car stickers around the city so we're not alone over here, look out for our number plates - mine is ALBION on a black Golf and a few other lads have WBAFC 0, WBAFC 1, WBAFC 2 & WBAFC 3.

     

    There is also an official Baggies supporters club in Oz though I think it's based in Perth or Sydney but it's worth a look if you ever travel interstate and fancy a beer or two with them.

    Anyway, good luck with the move, hope to see you soon - you'll love it here in Adelaide, even if you do end up bleary eyed at 4am in a city pub after losing (again) to the Villa!

     

    Cheers, Paul.

    [h=2]Birmingham & Midland Group (BMG)[/h]

    Birmingham and Midland Group
    , next function will be held at The Jetty Hotel, Glenelg. On
    Friday 24 February from 7.30 til late
    , enter the Hotel via Elizabeth Street and meet us in the Birmingham & Midland Bar.

     

    As Adelaide’s only UK expats based group we welcome all, so if you have been here a long time or are a new arrival, come and have a good time. All kids are welcome.

     

    Background on the Birmingham & Midland Group
    The Birmingham & Midland Group was established in 2006, this small group afternoon picnic, soon grew with other functions in various location around Adelaide into what has be come quite a large number of people. The word of BMG soon spread, with requests to attend our functions coming from wide and far, it wasn't long before local and U.K. radio stations were requesting interviews. It was soon realised that the individuals and families attending arrived in Adelaide at various times some back in the late 50's and others within a day or two of before attending their first function.

     

    The purpose and philosophy of the Birmingham & Midlands Group
    Firstly it is to have a laugh with memories and stories over drinks and/or food with fellow migrants whether they be old or new arrivals, however what has become a vital and most important role for the group is that at times we serve as a first point of contact to new arrivals helping them put down their roots and giving support at this very stressful time, as we all know.

     

    I should mention and make it clear that by name, The Birmingham and the Midlands Group does attract a large number people from these area's, however the last thing we would want is to become exclusive and this is why this is why this is an open invitation to all.

     

    Follow us on facebook or make contact on 0410498127 or
    .
