Norman hoping to build on a solid start to his Saddlers career

25 January 2019

Right-back Cameron Norman is hoping to build on a solid start to his Saddlers career.

The 23-year-old became Walsall’s fourth January signing when he signed from Oxford on a two-and-a-half-year deal last week.

He made his debut at Gillingham a day later and helped the Saddlers keep a clean sheet in a comfortable 3-0 win.

The former Norwich youngster retained his place for the midweek match at Plymouth and was unlucky not to score with a header which hit the post.

Having started the last two games, Norman wants to “keep the momentum going” and admits the chance to come here was too good to refuse.

“I played a bit at Oxford but there was an opportunity to come here and it was one I couldn’t really turn down,” said Norman.

“I spoke to the manager and he had nothing but positive things to say.

“I jumped at the opportunity and at Gillingham I had a really good debut - I really enjoyed it.

“It’s important to keep the momentum going for myself and keep playing as many games as I can.

“Hopefully, I can help the team as much as I can and have success here. Success for myself should mean success for the club.”

After two long-distance away trips, Norman is looking forward to spending some time on the training ground getting to know his new teammates.

“It has been a bit of a whirlwind start,” he added.

“I’ve really enjoyed it so far and I will use these next few days to get around the training ground and familiarise myself with the team.

“I’ve got nothing but good things to say about the boys and staff – they have been really good so far.

“Hopefully, when we step out on the pitch next time, we can get a positive result.”
