“Firstly, I’d like to thank everyone at Walsall Football Club for the opportunity on becoming the Walsall Women’s First Team Manager,” he said.
“We are looking forward to the challenge the season will bring. Myself and Lauren are hopeful we can carry on moving this squad forward, create a pathway for young Saddlers who can come though the youth teams and mostly, build something that all Walsall fans will be excited about and want to come along and support each week.”
We welcome them both to the Club.
Walsall Women won 2-1 in their last league outing against Coventry City on Sunday November 6th.
