NEW England manager Roy Hodgson may have some work to do to win over the tabloid press but his appointment has proved a winner with Southam firm Mask-arade.

Hundreds of West Bromwich Albion fans wore masks of their manager at Saturday's game with Bolton Wanderers, and are set to don them again against Arsenal on Sunday (May 13) for Hodgson's final match before he leaves the club to take up the national team hotseat.

Lifelong Albion fan and Mask-arade director Dean Walton said: "After recent events we have been inundated with requests for Roy masks.

“He has been tremendous for the Albion and we wanted to show our thanks and give him a special Baggies send off."

The company is also busy meeting demand for a host of Diamond Jubilee-related masks and products ahead of next month.

Business took off for Mask-arade after appearing on Dragon's Den, where their idea was rejected by the panel of multi-millionaire entrepreneurs.
