Next Walsall Manager: Movement in the Market

Here is our latest look at who could be in the dugout in WS1 next season.
Bescot Banter - Walsall FC NewsThere has been some movement in the market as the oddsmakers continue to consider who is most likely to replace Michael Flynn in the dugout at Poundland Bescot Stadium at the beginning of next season.

Flynn, who left Walsall FC alongside assistant Wayne Hatswell in midweek, had seen his side struggle for form since 2022 became 2023 and was sacked after the Saddlers slipped to a three-nil defeat to Harrogate Town on Tuesday evening.

The club has placed Mat Sadler, the recently returned Richard O'Kelly, and goalkeeping coach Dan Watson in charge of first-team affairs whilst they look for a suitable replacement.

Since we posted our first 'Next Walsall Manager' post, bookmaker BetVictor have looked to shorten the field with a former joint favourite now standing tall atop the list of prospective candidates.

Former Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell, who has been out of work since leaving the Railwaymen back in April 2022, is now 3/1 favourite to take charge in WS1.

Current interim boss Mat Sadler and former Lincoln City, Huddersfield Town, and Portsmouth gaffer Danny Cowley are joint second in the list with odds of 8/1, whilst Karl Robinson and former Walsall boss Darrell Clarke are next at 12/1.

Leam Richardson, Nigel Adkins, and Graham Alexander can be backed at 16/1, with former Southampton manager Nathan Jones and Blues boss Lee Bowyer sitting at 20/1.

The likes of Dave Challinor, Clint Hill, and Brian Barry Murphy are at 25/1 before a whole host of prospective managers, including Phil Brown, Robbie Fowler, Scott Parker, and Neil Lennon available at 33/1.

Odds correct as of 1.00am Saturday, 22nd April 2023 |
