Guthrie raring to go

23 June 2017

Jon Guthrie is ready to get started with the Saddlers after arriving from Crewe on a two-year deal.

“I’m really excited to join the club," said the 24-year-old, who scored once in 137 appearances for the Railwaymen.

"The deal has been agreed for a while now, so I’m glad to get the announcement over the finishing line. I’m really excited and can’t wait to get started.

“There was a big attraction to come and play for Walsall, there were a couple of clubs who had made offers both in League One and Two.

"But I felt after meeting Jon [Whitney], seeing the training ground facilities and learning more about the club, I knew that this would be the best fit for me.

“The majority of my games have been played in League One so I’m used to the league and know what it’s about.

“The club are well known for developing players and that’s what I want to do, keep improving. For me this was the best fit for me and the right club for me.”

Guthrie will officially join the Saddlers on 1st July when his current contract with Crewe expires.
