Kiernan aiming to have a positive impact to Saddlers attack

1 July 2021

Walsall’s latest signing Brendan Kiernan has set his stall out for the new season as he aims make an impact at the Banks's Stadium.

The 28-year-old winger joined the club earlier this week on a free transfer from Harrogate Town and has already got stuck in with pre-season training.

Kiernan hopes to be a real threat in the Saddlers attack and feels he has a lot to offer to the team.

“I’m looking to bring the energy that I give on the pitch, hard work, hopefully chip in with a few goals, create a few chances for the boys and give my best every week, that’s the plan,” said Kiernan.

“I’m a forward, I like getting at people, I like being sharp in and around the box, scoring goals and making chances so I’m hoping to be easy on the eye and cause problems for defences.

“You go out to score when you’re playing as a forward and if it’s not me and someone’s in a better position, it’s for me to supply for them.

“You want to go out and score goals as a forward so I’m definitely looking forward to doing that.”

Kiernan is excited for the new campaign and is looking forward to working with Head Coach Matthew Taylor after conversations with him prior to his move.

“He’s been speaking about the project he’s working on here at Walsall and it’s an exciting time for the boys coming in and the boys here already,” he explained.

“I’m looking forward to having a winning mentality, you can tell he’s a winner and I want to win games.

“I’m excited, happy that it’s got done. It all happened quite quickly so I’m really happy and looking forward to get going.”
