Hughes on trial, Davis on loan

Exile @ 9:37 pm Thursday 09 September 2010

Veteran midfielder Bryan Hughes is training with the Saddlers as Hutchings casts his eye on the 34 year-old scouser. Hughes has turned out for Wrexham, Birmingham, Charlton and (most recently) Hull in his time and his experience and eye for the game could help Walsall’s youthful midfield.

At the moment things are up in the air as to whether or not he’ll cut the mustard, but if he’s not crocked expect him to be added to the squad some time soon.

Meanwhile, ex Walsall youngster David Davis has come back to Bescot following his defection to the golden boys at Molineux just over a year ago. Hutch has agreed a loan deal for the midfielder for a month, subject to premiership clearance of course. Perhaps having Mick McCarthy across the motorway will help when we’re trying to get our posh local rivals to help us out.

So, two midfielders, at different ends of the age spectrum, to shore up the middle of the park and possibly give us a chance of playing a good game of “We’ll score more than you”. Let’s hope the defence starts to gel soon and make the job a little easier.


Final week news round-up

The Saddlers end their eventful 2009-10 campaign at home to Oldham this weekend. It will Joe Royle’s last match in charge so let’s hope the Walsall board do the great man justice by opening something special after the game. Here’s a round-up of other Walsall news this week:

The club unveiled a 2 year shirt sponsorship deal with NHS Walsall which will see the club have Walsall Hospice on the front of the shirts. Each shirt sold will result in a donation from club to hospice. Board member Richard Tisdale is promoting his company Sign Specialists on the back of the shirt.

The club have also agreed a deal with shirt manufacturers Admiral who will supply the kit until 2012 and have returned to a red home strip, with a green and black away jersey, after two campaigns in white.

In other news a man from Bolton has said pies at Bescot are amongst the worst of any ground in the country.
