Youth team held by Blackpool...

THE SADDLERS' youth team shared the spoils with Blackpool in a 1-1 draw.

"It was another impressive, fluent footballing display," said Academy Manager, Neil Woods. "We created countless chances and could have easily been four or five goals to the good at half-time, but as it was we went in at the break goalless.

"We finally got our noses in front on 65 minutes courtesy of a superb individual goal from Carlton McKenzie, but the lead was to last for just ten minutes as our visitors levelled matters.

"Despite the set-back, we continued to play some excellent technical football, but the game ended in frustration as we failed to find the winner.

"It was a frustrating result but not the performance."

WALSALL: Jones, Ashmore, Garner (Sinton), Christopherou, Henry, Rush, Flanagan, Heath, McKenzine (Kinsella), Bakayoko (Reid), Griffiths. Subs not used: Roberts, Dallison.
