The first of the new wave as our Ginger Mourinho seeks to reconstruct a Walsall side capable of challenging for promotion (surely ‘staying in this division’? – ed) is Ashley Hemmings.
The diminutive ex-Wolves forward has put pen to paper for a two year stint at Bescot. Standing just five foot six, he’s a left-sided player with pace to burn who is best suited to getting forward and causing problems.
He’s been on the books for the Dingles since 2009, when he was 18, and has been farmed out to Cheltenham and Torquay before doing a decent stint at Plymouth Argyle last year. He looks likely to be used as a winger or provider, as his goals per game ratio suggests he’d be a rival to Alex Nicholls in an out-and-out striker role!
Regardless, he’s young, hungry and ours, so we wish Ash all the best in his career with Walsall. What do you think?
