Walsall teenager paid big compliment by boss Mat Sadler

Mat Sadler is confident Dylan Thomas has a “fantastic chance” at Walsall.

Walsall's Dylan Thomas

The 16-year-old made his senior debut in a 3-2 defeat against Brighton Under-21s in the EFL Trophy in August.

Thomas has made a further two appearances for the Saddlers, and even starred for the under-18s less than 24 hours after his cameo from the bench at Sheppey United.
