Walsall have announced a freeze on season ticket prices for the 2018/19 campaign.

Supporters who purchase their ticket during the early-bird window, which opens for the whole of next month, will also be entered into a daily draw for prizes including England tickets and a training ground experience.

The cheapest adult season ticket available at the Banks’s will remain at £259, with the most expensive – situated in the Homeserve Stand – priced at £356.

Young supporters will once again have the chance to watch the team for free.

Members of Swifty Squad, open to under-12s, will be admitted free with a full paying adult, while the Saddlers Crew under-18s ticket, priced at £69, will be refunded by £3 for every home league game attended. Prizes in next month’s daily draw also include the chance to win back the cost of a season ticket, along with family day passes to West Midlands Safari Park.

Walsall are back in action tonight when they host Doncaster Rovers, aiming to extend a two-game unbeaten run and pull further clear of the League One relegation zone.

Boss Jon Whitney believes his team are heading in the right direction and has been heartened by how quickly the club’s January signings have settled into life in the Midlands.

The Saddlers signed four players on loan in the final days of the transfer window, including highly-rated Arsenal defender Krystian Bielik.

Bielik impressed while on loan in the Championship at Blues last season but a serious shoulder injury, which required surgery, meant he missed out on several moves last summer.

In an interview published in his native Poland, Bielik explained: “I wanted to play in a first-team in England but because of the injury, clubs did not want to risk me.

“I got to League One and I’m glad that we managed to find a club in the senior football program. People think what they want. This league is as hard as the Championship.”
