Loan Watch: Saturday, 26th February 2022

Here we take our latest look at how Walsall's loan stars are getting on.

Walsall defender Joe Foulkes and midfielder Joe Willis are currently away on short-term loan deals as they look to force their way into the first-team.

Defender Foulkes is plying his trade in the Vanarama National League North with Kidderminster Harriers, whilst midfielder Willis is with Southern League Premier Division Central side Bromsgrove Sporting.

It was an afternoon to forget for Joe Foulkes as not only did he and his Kidderminster side slip to defeat away to Farsley Celtic, but the right-sided defender also saw red in the dying stages of the game, earning him a suspension.

Taking to the field at the seventy-minute mark, with the game already 2-1 to the hosts, goals from Jimmy Spencer (23') Will Hayhurst (67') either side of Ashley Hemmings' first-half penalty giving them the lead, Joe was booked ten-minutes later before seeing red ten-minutes after that.

Both sides would end the match with ten men as Farsley captain Chris Atkinson saw red a couple of minutes before Foulkes as the two sides went head-to-head in a battle for the ages.

Joe Willis was named in the Bromsgrove starting XI as they played host to Nuneaton Borough at the Victoria Ground, but was unable to help his side avoid defeat as Anthony Dwyer's second-half strike was enough to separate the sides.

The result sees Sporting, who boast former Saddlers Will Shorrock, Connor Taylor, and Mich Candlin amongst their ranks, sitting just above the relegation zone having won just seven of their 29 league games.
