"It’s Exciting" - Stephen Ward on His Switch to the Saddlers

Walsall's newest recruit has spoken after making the move to the midlands.
Stephen Ward is a Saddler.
Following the news that he'd become the eighth man to make the switch to the Saddlers, experienced defender Stephen Ward has spoken of his excitement as he begins a new chapter in his career.

The 35-year-old left-sided defender, who left League One's Ipswich Town at the end of last season, has penned a one-year deal and is keen to work with former playing colleague Matthew Taylor.

Ward, a former Republic of Ireland international, has made over 540 club appearances during an 18-year career and is hoping to bring his wealth of experience to the Saddlers during the 2021/22 campaign.

Speaking via the club's official website, Stephen, who has been training with the squad for the last few days, said; "It’s exciting.
 
"I have been in with the lads training for a couple of days now, having a look at the place, and I am really impressed with how the Head Coach is trying to go about his business and his ambition for the season.
 
"I have been really impressed from speaking to the Head Coach, and I am really excited to get going this year."
