Front-man ready to make his mark...

SHORTLY after the final whistle sounded to signal the end of our Capital One Cup clash with Crystal Palace, we were delighted to be able to announce that a deal had been agreed with talented front-man, Mathieu Manset.

Having impressed during a pre-season trial, the 25 year-old thrashed out a deal to join The Saddlers having departed Belgian outfit, Royal Antwerp.

"I am very happy to have signed for the club," said the former Hereford United and Reading man. "I played a couple of games in pre-season and really enjoyed it.

"The style of play suits me; I like to pass and move and the team is set up to play this way.

"It's a proud moment for me and I can't wait to get started. I'm a strong player who does his best to move defenders and looks to score goals.

"Hopefully I can come in and help the team. It will be good to play under Dean Smith and Richard O'Kelly; they love their football and do things the right way.

"The set-up is excellent here and I feel that I can really improve by being in this environment. It's a nice stadium to play in and the training ground is a great place to work.

"The fans were very supportive to me over the summer and now I want to repay them with goals.

"I prefer to keep my targets to myself, but I am excited by this challenge."

Manset stands by to make his debut at Scunthorpe United on Saturday.

Look out for the full interview on Saddlers Player on Wednesday...
