THE SADDLERS secured the services of the reliable full-back on August 31st 2012 following an impressive display in a Capital One Cup tie at QPR as a non-contract player.

Taylor began his career with Blackburn Rovers where he came through the ranks of his hometown club and earned recognition from England at Under-19 and 20 level along the way.

During his time at Ewood Park he had loan spells at QPR, Blackpool, Crewe, Huddersfield and Tranmere, who went to sign him on a permanent basis.

His displays for Rovers prompted a switch to Sheffield United in the summer of 2009 for an undisclosed fee and having established himself in The Championship, injury halted his progress.

He was released by The Blades during the summer of 2012 after over 40 senior games for the club.

Looking to get his career back on track with The Saddlers, he soon became a valued member of the team with a consistent level of performance and coolness on the ball.

With a new lease of life, he was only too happy to extend his stay with the club into 2013/14, where another solid campaign followed and saw him pen a new two-year deal in July 2014.
