From the Walsall Observer Handbook 1888-1955
Enjoyed reading that. Thanks for posting.
500 fan’s traveled,for what was a brand new team,l know Perry Bar isn’t a million miles away,but It just shows how important the railway was to ordinary people.
Have you read Birth of the Saddlers by Mike Bradbury? Officially sanctioned by the club, it came out about 5-6 years. Probably still available in the club shop if not on Amazon or eBay.
Very well researched and a good read if you’re interested in the clubs early days.
@AndyWTaylor - The Mike Bradbury book is really good. Read it through several times. I recommend it to all Saddkers fans.

100 years of WFC and we have managed to end up in a position whereby Bonser got the club to pay for a stadium to be built but acquired the freehold for himself and subsequently appointed Pomlett as the rent collector.
