Steve Hale Named as Walsall's New Senior Goalkeeping Coach

Walsall FC have today confirmed the appointment of Steve Hale as the club's new Senior Goalkeeping Coach.
Walsall Football Club have today confirmed the appointment of Steve Hale as the club's new Senior Goalkeeping Coach following the recent departure of Neil Cutler, who joined West Bromwich Albion, with Steve joining the club for the remainder of the 2017/18 campaign.

Hale, who holds the UEFA Goalkeeping A-Licence, spent nine years with Swindon Town, becoming the Robins’ Head of Goalkeeping in 2014 and playing a key role in the development of several goalkeepers, including current Rangers number one Wes Foderingham.

Steve, who took part in a Saddlers training session earlier this week, most recently worked for Forest Green Rovers, a club which he left in January, following an 18-month spell.

Saddlers manager Jon Whitney spoke to club journalists and welcomed Steve to the club, he said; "Steve is experienced and when I’ve spoken to him, that comes across and he can handle himself in the first-team environment. He’s a different voice, which is no bad thing for the goalkeepers.

"I want Steve to keep the keepers enthused, make the session really dynamic. He’s good on his statistics and he’ll be a help from set pieces as well. He’s going to add a lot to the run-in and I’d like to welcome him to Walsall Football Club."

We would also like to welcome Steve to the club, and wish him all the best as he begins to settle in at Essington.
