West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke and his backroom staff have a game of powerchair football against the club's official team.

West Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke put his coaching role to one side to take part in a game of powerchair football.

The 49-year-old, along with his assistants Kevin Keen and Keith Downing and goalkeeping coach Dean Kiely, took on the Baggies' powerchair team, which is run by the Albion Foundation.

The game involves disabled players using powered wheelchairs on a basketball court, with goals implemented for the game.

"I went to watch them training three weeks ago and was really impressed," the Daily Mail quotes Clarke as saying. "I did think, 'I can do that,' so I challenged them to a game against our backroom team.

"But if you have a go, it's really difficult. We were hopeless, and Kevin Keen was sent off which presents me with another internal disciplinary problem. The boys and girls make it look really easy. Believe me, it's not."

The club's powerchair team will compete at the EPFA Power Championships League in Paris this summer.
