Laird Thankful Following One of the Most Enjoyable Seasons of His Career

10:07 am Thursday, 18 May 2017  
29-year-old, Taunton-born Laird, made thirty-one appearances in a Saddlers shirt, scoring four goals and becoming something of a fan favourite in the process.
Former Walsall loanee Scott Laird, who made over thirty first-team appearances for the Saddlers, has spoken to the local press and thanked the club, its players, staff and fans for all of their support over his season-long loan spell.

Scott, who has since returned to his parent club Scunthorpe United, spoke to the Express & Star's Walsall reporter Joseph Masi and refused to rule out a return to the Banks's Stadium, he said; "It was a great season for me at Walsall – even though we didn’t go on and get into the Play-Offs – it was still one of my most enjoyable seasons in football.

"That was because of the fans, the players the staff and all the media guys as well. I just want to say thanks to the fans for the way they accepted me and the way they took to me. They are a massive part of why I enjoyed my time at Walsall so much.

"Hopefully next season, whether I come back as a Walsall player or an opposing player I will get my song sang again. Walsall is a great place to be. And I couldn't have asked for anything more from my time at the club."
