Mark Gillespie Named in the 'Team of the Day'

Saddlers stopper Mark Gillespie has been named in the Football League Paper's Team of the Week following his superb display against Bury.
Walsall goalkeeper Mark Gillespie, who made his first-team debut at the weekend as the Saddlers opened their 2017/18 campaign with a defeat to Bury, has been named in the Football League Paper's League One 'Team of the Day'.

25-year-old, Newcastle born Gillespie, who joined the club following almost ten years with Carlisle United, saved two penalties as he looked to keep his side in the match against the big-spending Shakers.

Unfortunately for Gillespie he couldn't prevent Bury from scoring as former Everton striker Jermaine Beckford found the back of the net on the stroke of half-time, his goal proving enough to defeat the shot-shy Saddlers as they began their campaign with a defeat.
