Football memorabilia belonging to the family of late Football Association and West Bromwich Albion chairman Sir Bert Millichip has been stolen. Raiders struck at Lady Barbara Millichip's Worcestershire home after she popped out for half an hour.
A Bachelor Brooch, given to Sir Bert when he was knighted and silver goblets inscribed with the Albion crest are among the stolen items.
Sir Bert's son, Peter Millichip, has appealed to the thief to return them.
Also taken from the Barnt Green home during Friday's burglary was a gold chain with a UEFA medallion, five silver presentation platters and a silver bowl inscribed with the Albion and FA crests which were given to him on his retirement.
