Mitchel Candlin



Teenage forward who was just 16 when he made his Walsall debut, in a 1-0 defeat at Bradford in April 2017.

Now 19, he played five first-team games in 2016/17 and also helped the Development Squad win the Walsall Senior Cup, scoring a brace in the 4-3 semi-final victory over Wolverhampton Casuals.

Rewarded with a professional contract in August 2017, the Stafford-born striker featured four times the following season and spent the first half of 2018/19 on loan at Blackburn.
