Walsall have sent another player out on loan as winger Brendan Kiernan has joined fellow League Two side Grimsby Town until January.

Kiernan played 41 times in all competitions for the Saddlers last season, scoring six goals.

The 29-year-old, however, did see his game time reduce once Michael Flynn took charge, and he now heads to Paul Hurst's Mariners in search of regular minutes.

Kiernan's only cameo during pre-season for Walsall – who finish their warm-up fixtures at Solihull Moors on Saturday – came in the 2-0 victory at AFC Telford United last weekend.

He is the fourth player to be loaned out by the Saddlers this summer after Joe Foulkes, Sam Perry and Rollin Menayese joined Kidderminster Harriers, Yeovil Town and Hartlepool United respectively.

Meanwhile, Walsall are holding a ‘meet the manager’ event with Flynn and his coaching staff in the Stadium Suite at Bescot on Monday night.

Flynn will be joined by assistant boss Wayne Hatswell, assistant first team coach Mat Sadler and new goalkeeping coach Dan Watson to answer fans' questions. The free event starts at 7pm.
