Gillespie Thanks His New Teammates as They Welcome Him With Open Arms

9:30 am Wednesday, 5 July 2017
Newcastle-born Gillespie, who made over one-hundred and fifty first-team appearances for former club Carlisle United, has already settled in at Bescot Stadium.
Walsall goalkeeper Mark Gillespie, who recently joined the club following the expiration of his Carlisle United contract, has spoken to club journalists and discussed how well he has settled into life at the club.

Speaking via, Mark, who spent nine-years at Brunton Park, said; "It’s been really good. The lads have been great and the staff as well. It’s been a really easy transition to come here.

"It’s the first time I have been with a new side but it’s been enjoyable. I’ve worked hard. It’s been a lot easier to settle in that I thought it would be and that is down to the lads.

"It’s a totally new group for me but everyone has been so welcoming and we just want to get on and work hard because we are looking forward to a positive season."
