Whitney Confirms Jordan Archer Trial

Walsall boss Jon Whitney has confirmed that Stourbridge striker Jordan Archer has been training with the first-team squad.
Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to the press and confirmed that, as we reported on Friday, the club have taken 23 year-old Stourbridge striker Jordan Archer on trial, although it is very early days for the Walsall-born forward.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Jon confirmed; "We have invited Jordan Archer to come in and train with us but it is very early days. He joined up with us on Thursday and we will have a look at him again on Monday.

"It really is very early days with that. There is nothing guaranteed with that one. We just want to have a look at him because we want to make sure we are looking at players in non-league. Solihull Moors have got a few as well we are looking at. We are making sure we touch as many bases as we can and look at players."

Archer began his career with nearby Chasetown, where he progressed through the youth and development ranks into the first-team. After making his Scholars debut Jordan went on to gain experience with spells at Cradley Town, Tipton Town, Tividale, Redditch United, Boldmere St. Michaels and Bedworth United before joining the Glassboys in November 2016.

Archer, who stands at 6ft,3in tall, is currently the leading goalscorer in the Evo-Stik Premier Division with five goals and is said to be on several other club's radars as he continues to make a mark in the early stages of the 2017/18 campaign.
