Following the news that he'd joined the club as new goalkeeping coach, Dan Watson has spoken to club journalists and welcomed the opportunity to sign for his hometown club.

Watson, who spent the 2021/22 campaign alongside Owen Evans at Cheltenham Town, replaces recent departure Maik Taylor and is keen to help the club's stoppers reach the next level.

The Walsall-born 44-year-old admitted that, while a move to Walsall was the right move for him and his family, he is also hoping to contribute to a sustained promotion push as he wants to repeat the feat he achieved three years ago.

Speaking via the club's official website, Dan said; "I’m excited to be here.

"I live in Walsall; my kids go to school in Walsall so it has that little bit more of an edge on it because I’ve got family and friends who are season ticket holders.

"The manager and the assistant manager, we know their ambitions are to be up there challenging, that’s why I’ve come from League One into League Two because not only is it my hometown but I believe Walsall stand every opportunity of being up there.

"I got promoted out of this league three years ago and what a feeling it would be to do it with your hometown club.

"Coming this late into pre-season, you’d normally be building a relationship with the goalkeepers. I’ve had a good chat with Adam about what he expects and what I expect of him.

"With Owen, we’re already underway in terms of he knows how I work and I know how he works so it’s great coming in this late to have that head start with him. I’m looking forward to working with both."
