It’s been a week since the Black Country Talent Match Awards 2019! Thank you to all those who were able to join us at the Molineux Stadium, it was a pleasure to see so many new and familiar faces.  

We hope that you all agree it was truly an inspirational day thanks to the contributions of our young people, Junior, Lucy and Jonathan, and of course, Richard McCann’s motivational keynote.
