Walsall defender Joe Foulkes, who penned his first professional contract alongside Danny Coogan in June, is currently the only Saddler out on loan as he enjoys a short-term stay with the Harriers.

Scheduled to remain with the Harriers until early January 2022, Joe was once again among the starters as his temporary team played host to Gateshead on Saturday afternoon.
 
Despite seeing his side ultimately slip to defeat, the match was a special one for Foulkes as he grabbed his first goal in professional football.
 
Gateshead opened the scoring after seven minutes through Macaulay Langstaff, who went on to double his tally some nineteen minutes later.
 
Walsall prospect Joe Foulkes reduced the deficit shortly before half-time, but Paul Blackett re-established the two-goal margin seven minutes into the second forty-five.
 
Harriers were able to get within a goal of their visitors via Ashley Hemmings' sixty-second minute header, but Gateshead withstood some late pressure to see out the win and claim all three points. 

A disappointing afternoon for Kidderminster but a big one for their loanee Joe Foulkes.
