Walsall have confirmed the appointment of goalkeeping coach Dan Watson, who has penned a multi-year deal after leaving Cheltenham Town just last week.

Walsall-born Dan Watson, who left the Robins in order to move closer to home, is charged with coaching first-team stoppers Owen Evans, a 'keeper who he recently coached at Cheltenham, and fellow summer signing Adam Przybek.

Replacing Birmingham City-bound Maik Taylor, 44-year-old Watson is a crucial addition to the Saddlers backroom as the club looks to mount some sort of challenge on the upper reaches of the table following several seasons of struggle.

Dan began his playing career at Derby County before joining Wolverhampton Wanderers and then Luton Town, where he would suffer a serious knee injury, which would ultimately end his playing career, though not before a spell with Kidderminster Harriers.

After a period of coaching in non-league football, he enjoyed a three-year stint with Port Vale before spells with Carlisle United and Northampton Town.

After helping the Cobblers to League Two Play-Off triumph in 2020, Dan went on to join Cheltenham last summer but a change in family circumstances means he has decided to move back to the Midlands and his hometown club.
