Gordon relishing new challenge with the Saddlers

25 May 2022

Walsall new boy Liam Gordon is relishing his new challenge with the Saddlers and working with Head Coach Michael Flynn.

The defender joined on a free transfer from League One side Bolton Wanderers and became the Club’s first signing of the summer.

Gordon was clear on his aims for the season ahead and understands the expectations from the Head Coach.

“I’ve been speaking to the Head Coach and I know what his expectations are, what he wants from me and I’m excited for the Club’s future and his plans for the Club going forward,” he said.

“I spoke to the gaffer about his formation and that completely suits me. I’m an attacking full-back, I like to get forward, I like to contribute with goals and assists but I’ve got to help with the defensive side as well.

“I had a great time at Bolton, last season especially. It was my first time in League Two and League One when I was there, it was a great experience.

“It didn’t work out towards the end but I’m definitely looking forward to the new challenge.

“This club deserves to be back in League One, if not higher as well but first and foremost, our goal is to get promoted this season.

“That’s my goal and that’s what the gaffer wants as well."

The 23-year-old is keen to kick on at club level but is also looking to continue playing for his country.

He’s got seven caps for Guyana, including an unforgettable experience playing at a major tournament.

“I played at the Gold Cup and that was an unbelievable experience,” he recalled.

“Our first game was against USA and it was in America as well. Words can’t describe that experience, especially representing my country so hopefully that can continue.”

“Recently, I haven’t been playing at Bolton but they’ve been supportive with me and I said I need to figure out what I’m doing career-wise so I put it on the back burner a bit.

“Hopefully, once I kickstart my career with Walsall and I’m playing, it will work hand in hand and I can get out there and start helping the country do well.”
