Walsall's Head of Performance Analysis, Calum Hayes, has announced his departure after almost eight years at the club.

Calum, who joined the Saddlers as an intern back in July 2013, also enjoyed internships with both Nottingham Forest and Derby County before arriving at the Banks's, giving him plenty of experience to fall back upon.

Earning his Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Sport and Exercise Science from the University of Derby, Calum wasted no time in making his mark at the club, taking the Head Analyst role in September 2014.
 
In his role as Performance Analyst Calum was responsible for a whole host of aspects of the club's pre- and post-match focus including, video analysis, and biomechanical analysis.

Working with several members of the club's coaching set up, Calum sought to deliver a comprehensive analysis support system to first team players, coaches and management.
 
Providing a scouting presentation of opposition players highlighting opposition key strengths and weaknesses, key players, styles of play, and a tactical insight of set play routines.

A local lad, Hayes, who also operates 'Analysis11' - which works to educate the next generation of analysts - has formed part of several manager's backroom setups including Dean Smith, Jon Whitney, Dean Keates, and Darrell Clarke, once again offering him a wealth of experience to draw upon.

In a statement, released via his social accounts, Calum sought to thank the club and all who had helped him during his time in WS1, he said; "After 8 years the time has come for me to leave Walsall Football Club.

"I am very grateful to the club and all who have helped me develop and enhance my skill set, whilst creating such happy memories.
 
"Being part of a club that I watched whilst growing up is something I feel very proud to have been a part of.
 
"Of course this has made this such a difficult decision but ultimately I feel time is right considered new opportunities!

"Finally I would like to wish everyone all the best and success for the future."

We would like to wish Calum all the best for the future. #AlwaysASaddler
