Vincent looking to make an impression

2 February 2021

Walsall midfielder Frank Vincent is looking to make an impression during his time on loan at the Banks’s Stadium.

The 21-year-old joined on loan from AFC Bournemouth in January and made his debut from the bench against Port Vale.

Vincent was pleased to have already got some minutes under his belt for Darrell Clarke’s side and he was delighted to join the club for the remainder of the season.

“I’m buzzing to be here,” he said.

“When I first got the message to say that I might have been coming here, I was buzzing to be fair. My Scunthorpe loan got finished and I just wanted another crack at League Two really.

“When the opportunity came, I was just buzzing to come here. It is a big club with a big history and I am just hoping to crack on now and do as well as I can for myself and for the team as well. Hopefully we can get ourselves into the play-off places.

“I was buzzing the gaffer gave me the chance to go out on the pitch against Port Vale. It had been a while since I had played with my injury but it felt great to be back out there.

“We were defending the lead at the time so I went out there and worked as hard as I could. That’s predominantly what I love to do. I love chasing the ball down, I love pressing.

“I’ve got a lot of energy and the gaffer gave me the freedom to just go for it. It wasn’t like we were all just sat behind the ball and shuffled side to side, we went for it and we got after them which was part of my game and I love doing that.

Vincent feels he has a lot of good attributes to bring to the table both on and off the ball and he provided Saddlers fans with a bit of a flavour of what they can expect from him.

“I am a very energetic player,” he commented.

“I think I am one of those players that when people watch me, they can see that I have got a lot of passion and energy to give to the team but that is out of possession.

“I like to be like a rat basically, just getting around and getting the ball back for the team.

“On the ball, I like to think that I am quite a creative player that can create chances for my team mates. I still haven’t got a career goal so hopefully I can change that in the coming weeks or this season, that’s definitely a goal of mine. I would say that I am a creative player who’s left-footed.”

Vicent will be keen to be involved when the Saddlers take on Southend United at Roots Hall on Saturday.
