Loan Watch: Saturday, 5th February 2022

Here we take our usual look at how the Saddlers' loaned-out prospects 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 Matthew Taylor's first-team plans.

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 a famous though disappointing day for Joe Foulkes and his Kidderminster Harriers side as they took Premier League West Ham United all the way to the verge of penalties before suffering the heartache of a late goal, with the much-fancied side securing a place in the Fifth Round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Alex Penny (19') had put the Harriers into an unexpected first-half lead, with the travelling Hammers forced to deploy some well-timed substitutes to eventually level.

Second-half substitute Declan Rice (90') levelled the scores, before Jarrod Bowen (120') broke Harriers hearts just moments before the match would have headed for penalties as he slipped the ball home.

Of course, were it not for the Premier League calling for replays to be scrapped in the latter stages of the competition, Russ Penn's side would have been making a trip to the London Stadium and adding some much-needed funds to club coffers, however, that wasn't meant to be.

Joe was an unused substitute for the match, but will no doubt have gained plenty of experience as his side almost enjoyed a famous afternoon at the Aggborough.

Meanwhile, Joe Willis was a second-half substitute as Bromsgrove Sporting held Banbury United to a one-all draw at Spencer Stadium.

The Puritans took the lead with just five-minutes on the clock, through a Jay Williams header, but had to settle for a point as Rouslers man Toby Raison put his side back on level terms midway through the second half.
