Liam Gordon signs contract extension!

9 January 2024

Walsall Football Club are pleased to confirm that defender Liam Gordon has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the Poundland Bescot Stadium until 2025.

The 24-year-old has played 64 times and scored twice for the Saddlers since joining from Bolton Wanderers in the summer of 2022.

He has become an integral member of the backline and has impressed with his enterprising performances.

Gordon has also made good progress on the international stage during his time with the Saddlers having played a key role in helping Guyana win their CONCACAF Nations League group, resulting in promotion to League A.

The defender is delighted to extend his stay and is focused on reaching his and the team’s goals.

“I’m delighted to finally get it done,” Gordon said.  

“It’s been a conversation that the Head Coach and I have had for quite a while.

“I’ve created such a good relationship with the staff, the boys from this season and the boys from last season, the Chairmen, the whole board and the fans most importantly.

“It feels like a home to me and I’ve settled down here so it’s like a home away from home.

“I’m happy it’s finally done and I can focus on the plans we have for this season and next season.”

Head Coach Mat Sadler is pleased to tie down another member of his squad.

"I'm delighted Liam has extended his contract," Sadler said.

"It's a continuation of the hard work we've been putting in behind the scenes to keep building and progressing all aspects of the squad.

"Liam is someone we've worked really hard to secure and this is a really positive step on the back of Oisin and Jack signing new deals recently and hopefully a couple of other ones as it all moves forward. 

"His performances have been outstanding but more so on top of his performances, the character that he is - he's wonderful person. He wants to improve, he wants to get better and push his career forwards.

"We want to build together, have continuity throughout the group and that's what we're building towards. 

"I'm delighted Liam has chosen to continue this part of his career and journey with us."
