DEAN Smith will run the rule over a number of Trinidad & Tobago’s hottest prospects during The Saddlers’ pre-season tour.
Five players from our hosts, Central FC, will train with The Saddlers during our week-long stay in the Caribbean.
“As part of the deal to go to T & T a number of Central FC’s player will work with us,” explained Smith. “It will be good for the players and it will also be useful for us in terms of judging the standard of players on the islands.”
Former England International, Terry Fenwick, who manages Central FC added:
“This will be great for the guys who are selected” said Fenwick. “Not only will it give them a firsthand experience of an English League Club, but it will also be a trial period, as Walsall are hoping to find one or two players to have a closer look at.”
The Saddlers will take part in three fixtures as follows:
Walsall vs. Tobago XI, Friday, 5th July. Plymouth Recreation Centre, Tobago (kick-off 6.00pm local time).
Walsall vs. Central FC, Sunday, 7th July, Ato Boldon Stadium, Trinidad (kick-off 4.00pm local time).
Walsall vs. Pro League XI, Tuesday, 9th July, Hasely Crawford Stadium, Port of Spain, Trinidad (kick-off 6.00pm local time).
