Independent saddlers. Supporters association.

We have been REALY busy up at railway club. Constructing a 48 seater. Covered stand ,

Most of the. construction work is now complete and we will soon be fitting the roof. And seats. And. Finishing the cosmetic work.

We are proud of what we have done. In bringing. Another facility. To our base at the railway club , and. This stand is a fantastic facility for a grass roots level football club

Not only will it be an asset to the Issa FC side it will also be a community asset to. Kids grass roots football. As they. Progress from the junior pitch. Through to the adult one. When hopefully. One day. We will See. One of them progress to pull on a saddlers shirt

We dared to dream. Of. Building a supporters association to be proud of. And even tho I say it myself I think we have done just that And. With the help of ex saddler legends , local buisnesman. And you the fantastic supporters of Walsall FC. Alongside al, involved with the railway club. We have grown at a phenomenal rate

Our aim was always to put you the fans first and foremost in our thoughts. Whilst helping out in our local. Community, whilst also. Re engaging fans with our hometown club
