Jack is Back: Former Southampton Stopper Rose is Walsall's Newest Recruit

Walsall FC have confirmed their third signing of the summer.
Joining George Nurse and Rory Holden in making the switch to WS1 is former Southampton goalkeeper Jack Rose, who spent the whole of 2019/20 on loan at the Banks's, and was released by the Saints at the end of the campaign.

The 25-year-old, who is from Solihull, was on West Bromwich Albion’s books as a youngster and has gained EFL experience on loan at Accrington Stanley and Crawley Town.

Jack came through the ranks at West Brom, going on to sign his first professional contract in June 2013. He was loaned to Accrington in November 2014 and kept a clean sheet on his professional debut in an FA Cup tie at Notts County - his first of eight starts for Stanley.

The 6’3” stopper had a similar spell with Crawley towards the end of the 2015/16 campaign, playing five times for the Reds before returning to the Hawthorns, and rejoining the development team.

Jack also made one Checkatrade Trophy appearance for West Brom’s Under-21s, against Millwall, before departing the Baggies and subsequently signing for Southampton in August 2017.

Making a total of six first-team appearances during his loan spell last season, Jack will no doubt be looking to add to that number as he battles Liam Roberts for his starting spot in 2020/21.
