Cyrille REGIS' spectacular goal of the season


The Baggies legend demonstrated what he was capable of against Norwich City in 1982 when he scored a stunning long-range strike in the FA Cup which went on to win the BBC’s Goal of the Season award. He was a pioneer for black footballers in the game when he played alongside Laurie Cunningham and Brendon Batson at The Hawthorns, being appointed an MBE in 2008 and a 10ft statue of the trio was unveiled by West Brom in 2014. Regis won five caps for England between 1982 and 1987, having been one of the stars of the Baggies team between 1977 and 1984. He scored 112 goals in 297 appearances for Albion before moving on to Coventry, winning the FA Cup with the Sky Blues in 1987. Watch Cyrille Regis score the goal of the season in 1981-82, a spectacular strike for West Bromwich Albion to knock Norwich City out of the FA Cup (5th Round - 13 February 1982) :
