Liam Kinsella to Be Given a Chance to Make His Mark in Midfield

As he and his team continue to prepare for their upcoming pre-season clash with Rushall Olympic, Saddlers boss Dean Keates has spoken to the local press and discussed the future of Liam Kinsella, insisting the 22-year-old will be given an opportunity to impress in his preferred position of midfield.
Colchester-born Kinsella, who joined the Saddlers in 2004 when his farther Mark was at the club, has risen through the ranks at Banks's Stadium, going on to turn professional in March 2014. Despite showing plenty of promise at right-back Liam has made no secret of his desire to play in the middle of the park, as he does when on international duty with the Republic of Ireland.

While manager Dean Keates is keen to have options in defence he understands Kinsella's desire to play in midfield and will be offering the midfielder, who has already made fifty first-team appearances, an opportunity to prove his worth as the team builds towards the season-opening clash with Plymouth Argyle.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Dean said; "I’ve had a good chat with Kins. I know he can do a job at right-back because of his energy. He plays on the front foot and he is aggressive. He is a terrier. But he feels his best position is in central midfield. I did speak to him and I have to admit that was in my mind anyway. It is something we will look at in pre-season."
