At both Bescot Stadium and Fellows Park (if you are old enough to remember!)
At our current home, the 2-1 success against Aston Villa in 2003 is a stand out one. Villa fans had the chance to cheer on former Holt End fave Paul Merson whilst for many Saddlers fans it was the first sight of Merse in our colours.
It was an encouraging display by Walsall who ran out 2-1 winners with Merse getting one of our goals. His departure on 73 minutes saw a standing ovation from all four sides of the ground.
Another stand out for me was a 2-1 win at Fellows Park against Joe Mercer’s Manchester City in 1966. Allan Baker and Jimmy Murray notched our goals. This game marked the first of the new look ‘Saddlers News’ replacing the little red books of the previous season’s programmes.
