BRIAN TAYLOR

26 June 2015

Former Saddler passes away...

WE ARE sad to report the passing of former Walsall player, Brian Taylor.

The 78 year-old died suddenly whilst on holiday with friends.

He signed amateur forms with The Saddlers upon leaving school in 1952 before going on to become a full-time professional two years later.

The talented outside-left made a total of 78 senior appearances for Walsall, scoring 17 goals, before moving on to Birmingham City in 1958.

Injury halted his progress at St. Andrews, where he remained until October 1961 as he joined Rotherham United.

Going on to serve Shrewsbury Town, Port Vale, Barnsley, Kidderminster Harriers and Bromsgrove Rovers as he brought the curtain down on his playing career in the early 1970s.

The thoughts of everyone here at Walsall FC are with his family and friends at this sad time.
