Butterfield on Failing a Medical & Gaining Confidence From Reserves Defeat

Walsall's first Summer signing Kacy Milan Butterfield, who recently penned an initial one-year deal, has once again spoken to the Bermudian press and discussed the injury which scuppered an earlier attempt to sign for the club.
Walsall's first Summer signing Kacy Milan Butterfield, who recently penned an initial one-year deal, has once again spoken to the Bermudian press and discussed the injury which scuppered an earlier attempt to sign for the club.

Kacy had hoped to sign for the club following an initial three-week trial before Christmas, but a medical revealed he needed surgery on a torn ligament in his left shoulder. He returned home to get the issue fixed.

When he returned to the UK in April, Dean Smith had left the club for Brentford, but Interim boss Jon Whitney, who had spotted Butterfield’s shoulder injury, was still keen to take another look at the teenager, and ultimately played him in a Final Third Development League match against Bradford City Reserves.

Kacy, who was speaking via the Royal Gazette, said; “Failing the medical was a bad moment for me. I had already proved myself to one coach and then I had to prove myself to another. It was a tough time, but it gives me confidence knowing two different managers wanted to sign me.

"They put me straight into a friendly against Bradford City Under-21s to test my shoulder. We lost 6-1, but I think I played pretty well.”
