Walsall defenders Joe Foulkes, Rollin Menayese, Peter Clarke, midfielders Sam Perry and Brendan Kiernan, strikers Timmy Abraham and Shay Willock, and scholars Dan Baldwin and Marvellous Onabirekhanlen are currently out on loan as they look to force their way into Michael Flynn's first-team plans.

Foulkes is enjoying a second spell with Kidderminster Harriers, whilst Menayese and Kiernan remained in League Two with season-long stays at Hartlepool United and Grimsby Town respectively, whilst Perry joined National League outfit Yeovil Town.

Abraham and Clarke recently joined Oldham Athletic, whilst second-year scholar Willock is on a short-term work experience loan with Hellenic League Premier Division side Worcester Raiders, as well as forming part of the Saddlers' youth team.

And finally, second-year scholars Baldwin and Onabirekhanlen recently joined Worcester City on initial one-month work experience loans.

Brendan Kiernan was a second-half substitute as Grimsby Town grabbed a late leveller to take a share of the spoils against Steve Evans' promotion-chasing Stevenage on Saturday afternoon.

Taking to the pitch with just seven-minutes of the second-half remaining, Brendan's side were already a goal down as Jake Reeves had opened the scoring earlier in the half but Niall Maher, a rumoured Saddlers transfer target last summer, bundled the ball home in stoppage time to end Grimsby's losing run.

Peter Clarke and Timmy Abraham retained their starting spots as Oldham took on Maidstone United in the National League at Gallagher Stadium.

Despite seeing several goal-scoring opportunities, Timmy was unable to find the back of the net as his side and their opponents played out a goalless draw.

Joe Foulkes was named in the starting eleven as Kidderminster made the trip to Clarence Park and took on St Albans City in the Second Round of the FA Trophy.

Foulkes, who recently spent a spell on the sidelines through injury, was part of a Harriers side which secured safe passage to the Third Round as goals from Zak Brown (48') and Amari Morgan-Smith (79') were enough to cancel out Michell Weiss' 13th-minute opener.

Shay Willock was a second-half substitute as his Worcester Raiders side made the trip to South Gloucestershire and put five goals past Mangotsfield United on Saturday afternoon.

The hosts were able to get on the scoresheet twice with Jaydn Crossbie netting in either half, however, the afternoon belonged to Raiders captain Joe Billingham, who netted all five of his side's goals.

Shay was called into action with eight-minutes gone in the second half, however, the points were already decided with the score then standing at 5-1 to Worcester,

Rollin Menayese and Sam Perry weren't involved on Saturday afternoon as they continue to work their way back to full fitness following recent injuries.

Whilst Worcester City's match with Wolverhampton Casuals was called off due to a waterlogged pitch meaning Dan Baldwin and Marvellous Onabirekhanlen had an unexpected day off.
