It's a far cry from the luxury changing room facilities enjoyed by today Birmingham City’s Premier League players. 

An auction house is selling a large circular stone washstand which was used by the Blues players, more than 100 years ago to scrub up.

The stand, which has a 1.5 metre diameter, was one of many placed in the changing rooms at the Small Heath ground up to 1906.

It is believed the ground was used as a recreation ground by the Wolsey Car Company after Birmingham City moved to Bordesley Green in 1906.  

The changing rooms were eventually replaced in the early 1960s, and the stand fell into the hands of the current owner, who uses it to show off his award-winning flower displays.

Andrew Beeston from Shrewsbury-based fine art auction house Halls has valued the washstand at £1,000 and it is going under the hammer on April 28.
