Walsall fans give backing to Darrell Clarke
Walsall fans are overwhelmingly in favour of the appointment of Darrell Clarke as the club’s new manager.
A poll on the Express & Star website asked supporters if they were pleased to see the 41-year-old land the top job at the Banks’s Stadium.
And a staggering 83 per cent voted ‘yes’ – with fans backing Clarke to build a team capable of battling it out for promotion in League Two.
Supporter Lincoln Davies said: “I think we have made a great choice.
“Always rated him, he won promotions at his two previous clubs and he’s a straight-talking no-nonsense winner with the highest coaching badge a manager can have.
“Excited for next season now.”
Fellow fan Rob Simpson added: “What’s not to like? He’s young, hungry with a point to prove and works with limited resources.”
Meanwhile, Clarke will meet the media for the first time as Walsall boss tomorrow.
A press conference has been scheduled to take place at the Banks’s Stadium from 10am.
