JUSTICE FOR JEFF ASTLE

Nine minutes into Saturday's game a large banner will be unveiled in the Birmingham Road End (opposite the Tottenham supporters) reading 'Justice for Jeff' which starts a minute's applause - nine being the famous shirt number our dad wore. The two big screens at The Hawthorns will also display a picture of Jeff with the words 'If in doubt, sit them out' which refers to the dangers of concussion in sport.

Spurs fans are more than welcome to join in with the applause if they choose; for which we would be very grateful for; but if not we would like to take this opportunity to make them aware of our campaign if they haven't already seen it via the national media.

The Justice for Jeff banner has been at every West Bromwich Albion home and away game and will continue to be for the rest of this season. Hopefully by then the promised research into the links between heading footballs and brain damage will be in its early stages and, just as importantly, the research into former players and instances of dementia will have commenced.

We are aware that your great club has also had old heroes who suffered or are sadly still suffering with Alzheimer's or some other Degenerative Brain Disease. Arthur Rowe, Alf Ramsey, Tommy Harmer, Danny Blanchflower, Peter Baker and the 'indestructible' Dave Mackay, to name a few.

We would also like to respectfully ask that if you are aware of any other former players who may have died of, or are sadly living with Alzheimer's or any other Degenerative Brain Disease please contact us by emailing dawnastle@justiceforjeff.co.uk - this information is vitally important to forthcoming research. Our dad was the first British footballer to have been confirmed to die from CTE but he wouldn't of been the first and certainly won't be the last.

You can keep up-to-date and learn more about our campaign by visiting our website www.justiceforjeff.co.uk or through our Facebook and Twitter (#justiceforjeff) pages.

Yours Sincerely,
The Astle Family
