Matty Fryatt Remains Hopeful as He Targets a Return to Football

Matty Fryatt has spoken of his desire to get back football after missing over two-years of action due to a series of achilles injuries.
Striker Matty Fryatt, who has been training with the Saddlers for the last few months following the expiration of his contract with Championship side Nottingham Forest, has spoken to BBC Sport and discussed his desire to make a return to regular football after a suffering a series of achilles injuries over the last couple of years.

31-year-old Fryatt, who hasn't played a competitive game since March 2015, said; "I still have to manage all these things. I am not fixed but I am giving it a go. I'm trying. My contract expired at Forest and it was disappointing to play so few games.

"I know I am running out of time but if I can manage it, feel comfortable and if there is some hope, I will carry on. If that isn't the case I will have to call it a day but you are a long time retired, so if there is some hope I will keep on going and see what happens."

Matty, who was close to agreeing terms with Burton Albion during pre-season, continued; "The pre-season at Burton came a little too soon for me as I was not really in the right condition for them, but it was good to be out there for two weeks with them. The last month or so I have been training with Walsall, so they have given me an opportunity and I am still hopeful of giving it a go."
