Saddlers forward Timmy Abraham sat down with us for an exclusive interview in Saddlers Shout. 

Here is a snippet of our chat with the 21-year-old. 

You officially signed a couple of weeks ago. First of all, how well have you settled in and how are you finding life at Walsall?

“I’m enjoying it. I’m enjoying getting to know the boys and getting integrated in the team. We’re all trying to get to know each other a bit more and it’s looking good so far.”

When you look at the forward positions here, there’s quite a lot of competition but all of you seem to have something different that you have to offer…

“Yes 100 per cent. We are all different ages, have different strengths but we all want the same thing for the team so regardless of who’s playing, I feel like any of the attackers will give it their all because we all want the same thing. We train together all the time, we learn one or two things from each other so it’s good competition to have. We push each other and will continue to push each other all season.”

What would you say are your strengths?

“My strengths are running in behind defenders, working hard and giving my all regardless of the game. The main focus this season is getting on the scoresheet as much as possible and working hard for the team.”

You started your career at Fulham. What did you learn during your time there?

“I was at Charlton Athletic before and I went to Fulham at 16 so I was there for a little while. It’s been a good journey up until now. Playing with incredibly talented players on a regular basis really pushes you and it was a good time. Now, the main focus is Walsall. I learned a lot being there but it’s time to kick on and focus on what’s to come in the future.”

Did you come across former Saddler Elijah Adebayo during your time at Fulham?

“Yes, I spent a few years training and playing alongside him. Being a few years younger than him, I watched him coming up and watched his development and it showed me what I needed to do to be a striker that goes on loan and that was helpful.”
