Burrows in Baggies deal
Frank Burrows has signed a new three-year contract
Frank Burrows has signed a new three-year contract
West Brom assistant-manager Frank Burrows has followed the example set by boss Gary Megson and signed a new three-year deal with the Baggies.

Megson put pen to paper on a new contract two months ago after West Brom won promotion to the Premiership.

Now Burrows will stay as his number two at The Hawthorns until the summer of 2005.

Burrows, 58 and a former manager in his own right at Cardiff, Portsmouth and Swansea, was more than happy to nail his colours to the Albion mast.

"I'm delighted the club have offered me a new contract and I'll be doing my very best to make sure Albion keep making progress," said Burrows.

The partnership has proven successful since Megson and Burrows first came together to lead Albion to First Division safety in the 1999-2000 season, before finishing sixth and in the play-offs a year later.

Although West Brom lost out to Bolton in the semi-finals that season, the duo then went one step further 12 months on by steering the club into the Premiership and back into the top flight for the first time in 16 years after finishing as runners-up.

Chairman Jeremy Peace told the club's website, www.wba.co.uk, said: "We're pleased Frank's signed up for the same length of time as Gary, and hopefully as a proven partnership they can go on and establish us in the Premier League."
