Former Walsall Stopper Unlikely to Join Backroom Team

1:30 pm Friday, 18 May 2018  
Walsall manager Dean Keates has spoken to the local press and offered praise for former goalkeeping coach Steve Hale, who left the club after his short-term deal came to an end, before ruling out a move for ex-Walsall stopper Jimmy Walker, who had been linked with a return to the club.
Dean revealed that the wheels are in motion ashe seeks to add a 'keeper coach to his backroom team, with several names rumoured including current Wrexham coach Michael Oakes, who formed part of Keates' team at the Racecourse Ground.

Speaking via the Express & Star the manager praised Steve Hale for his work during his short time at the club, before ruling out a move for Wacka, who is currently working with League Two Play-Off Semi-Finalists Lincoln City, he said; "The wheels are in motion and I would expect a new goalkeeping coach relatively soon. Steve was outstanding, he came in and worked really well with Robbo and Gilly.

"He was out of contract so it gave me something to look at. It’s important for me to come in every day and be comfortable with the people I’m working with and be used to working with them. But I don’t see it being Jimmy if I’m honest. Jimmy is one of my best mates but I don’t see it being him."
