Josh Ginnelly Looking Forward to the New Season & Showing What He Can Do

2:34 pm Wednesday, 4 July 2018  
Walsall winger Josh Ginnelly, who recently penned an initial one-year deal with the club, has spoken to the local press and discussed his desire to establish himself in the starting line-up as he looks to prove his worth following his arrival on a free transfer a few weeks ago.
21-year-old Ginnelly, who enjoyed a less-than-successful six-month loan spell in the West Midlands in 2016, is keen to show that he has improved since his initial spell with the club and has a much-improved mindset and skills base as he looks to show the fans what he can do.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Josh said; "I’m 21-years-old, it’s coming to the point where I need to prove myself and I know I will. When I came here on loan I was quite young. But I learned a lot, probably more off the pitch than on it.

"My mindset now is very different. I hadn’t been out on loan before and it was my first real experience of the Football League. I was still getting to grips with things. Initially, I couldn’t get in the team. Then I got in the team but then I came out again.

"And I put pressure on myself. It didn’t come from the fans or anywhere else, it was from me – I wanted to be the best I could be. It didn’t work out the first time but I’m really looking forward to the new season and showing what I can do."

Since his loan spell at Banks’s Stadium, the former Burnley winger has enjoyed successful loan stints with then-National League sides Lincoln City and Tranmere Rovers, winning promotion to the EFL with both.

The Coventry-born wideman is keen to use those experiences to improve his game, he continued; "I have learned a lot since I was last here. When I was first here I looked at my individual performance first before the collective performance. Now though I know what the league is about. I know what is expected of me. And I know the fans here just want to see people working hard and that is what I will do.

"I am back home now, that helps a lot. I’m not travelling too far. So this the perfect move for me. I’m really looking forward to the season starting and facing Plymouth on the opening day."
