Walsall Confirm Ian Sharps' Departure

2:07 pm Wednesday, 9 May 2018  
Walsall FC have this afternoon confirmed that first-team coach Ian Sharps, who joined the Saddlers in November 2016, has left the club following the conclusion of a disappointing the 2017/18 campaign.
37-year-old Sharps, a former central defender who clocked up over 550 appearances during an eighteen-year professional career, arrived under then-manager Jon Whitney after leaving Chester FC and formed part of the somewhat threadbare backroom team.

Warrington-born Sharps may not be out of work for long as has been linked Chester's currently vacant managerial position as the Blues look to prepare for life in the Vanarama National League North following their recent relegation.

In a statement, released via the Walsall's official website - Saddlers.co.uk - they confirm; Walsall Football Club can confirm that First-Team Coach Ian Sharps has left the Club. he 37-year-old former Rotherham, Shrewsbury and Burton defender joined the Saddlers in November 2016 after leaving Chester, where he served as assistant manager.

He took caretaker charge following Jon Whitney’s departure in March and worked alongside manager Dean Keates, playing an important role, as we retained our League One status. We would like to thank Ian for all his hard work and dedication during his time with the club and wish him well for the future.
