Youngsters tied down until 2019...

Promising youngsters Kory Roberts and Jordon Sangha have signed new contracts that will keep them at the club until at least 2019. 

Centre-back Roberts has played twice for the Saddlers’ first-team this season, helping us keep a clean sheet on his debut at Oxford in December. 

The 19-year-old has also captained the Development Squad to the Central League North West Division title, as well as the semi-finals of both the Birmingham and Walsall Senior Cups. 

West Brom-born Sangha, another regular fixture for the Saddlers' second string, made his senior debut in our 1-0 Checkatrade Trophy victory at Leicester U21s in November.

The talented midfielder, also 19, enjoyed a one-month loan spell with National League North side Telford earlier this campaign, making two appearances for the non-league outfit.

He has been on Walsall's books since the age of eight and was named Apprentice of the Season in 2015/16.

Manager Jon Whitney commented: “Kory and Jordon are two bright prospects who represent the club in every way with their professional attitudes on and off the pitch. 

"They have a fantastic work ethic coupled with real potential and ability. They have been a joy to work with. 

“Kory has played for the first-team already and Jordon came on in the Checkatrade Trophy.

"I see them both as future first-team players – hence their new contracts.”
