Walsall send young duo back out on loan

Walsall | Sport | Published:

Walsall today sent striker Amadou Bakayoko and goalkeeper Liam Roberts back out on loan.

Bakayoko will be returning to Conference Premier side Southport after spending a month on loan there last October, scoring three times in 15 matches for the Sandgrounders.

Roberts will spend the remainder of the season at Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One South team Gresley and will make his debut tomorrow against Loughborough Dynamo.

The Saddlers shot-stoppers played at this level earlier in the season, when he was loaned to Rainworth Miners Welfare.

He said: "It's an advantage that I know the level I'm going into, having played in this league earlier in the season.

"On that occasion, I joined a club who were struggling and looking to move away from the foot of the table, this time I'm joining a club in the top half who are looking to really push on.

"It's important now that I start to get regular game time. I feel that I'm training as well as I have ever done.

"Although I didn't play during my loan spell at Southport, they were keen to make me feel part of the group.

"In that sense, it was a good experience to be around them and see how things are done in a different environment.

"This move offers me the chance to play regularly between now and the end of the season and really show the gaffer what I am capable of."
