Jake Scrimshaw Keen to 'Play as Many Games as Possible' as He Switches to the Saddlers

Walsall's latest recruit has welcome the opportunity to join the club.
Following the news that he'd joined the club on loan until January, Bournemouth striker Jake Scrimshaw has spoken to club journalists and discussed his desire to get among the goals as he looks to make the most of his spell with the Saddlers.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a loan spell with Vanarama National League side Eastleigh towards end of last season and also had a successful loan stint at Poole Town in 2018/19, where he scored seventeen goals to help them reach the Southern League South Play-Offs.

The striker was also named Bournemouth’s Under 18s Player of the Year for the 2018/19 campaign after his goals helped the young Cherries reach the FA Youth Cup Quarter-Final for the first time in their history.

Scrimshaw insisted he is aiming to play as many games as possible during his short stay in WS1 and is looking forward to helping the club progress during his spell in the Black Country.

Speaking via the club's official website, Jake said; "I’m really excited to be joining Walsall. I know the club want to be playing the right football in order to get back up to the leagues they belong in.

"I want to play and contribute as many goals as physically possible I’m desperate to play as many games as possible but looking forward to competing in the first-team environment there.

"In terms of what type of player I am, Danny Ings would be the best example as we’re obviously from the same academy, same size and both scored a lot of goals through the youth set up.

"I love to score goals but am always extremely hard working any time I am playing; work ethic is big for me."
