Following the news that he'd become the Saddlers' third signing of the summer, experienced defender Peter Clarke has spoken to club journalists and shared what he'll bring to the club.

Clarke, who will make the move to WS1 when his Tranmere Rovers contract expires at the end of the month, provides a wealth of experience to the club's backline, experience which even saw him play alongside Walsall boss, Michael Flynn.
Speaking via the club's official website, Peter said; "I initially spoke to the Head Coach, we had a brief spell playing together many, many moons ago, and we have always kept in touch, and we have respected each other's careers from afar.
"I had a call from him asking about my availability and having spoken to him and hearing how passionate and enthusiastic he was about one, bringing me into the Club and secondly about what he wants to do and how he wants to move the Club and the team forward, it was something that really, really appealed to myself.
"With us knowing each other from way back when, there is an initial respect, there is an initial knowledge of each other's capabilities and what we are about as a player, as a manager and also as a person, probably more importantly.
"The initial conversation was not a long one, but I think we both realised that we were thinking very much alike and were wanting to make the move happen as quickly and as smoothly as we possibly could. To me, my age isn’t an issue.
"To lots of other people, maybe it is, but I love being out there, I feel good. When younger players or other players ask about how you do it, to my way of thinking, it was all I ever wanted to do as a kid to be a footballer.
"Certainly the older you get and the more experienced you get, you have to take care of your body and everything has just become a habit and a way of life.
"I do everything I possibly can to make sure I am in the best shape I possibly can be to be available for selection as often as is possible."
