Here we go…
It’s so strange that we are all happy and excited despite relegation last season but that is down to Darrell Clarke and Leigh Pomlett for giving us a little bit more hope and we can put the nightmares of the last few years behind us!
This Saturday 1,400 Saddlers fans will descend on Northampton hoping to start our new era with a win (I mean that would just top off the perfect week wouldn’t it?)
The match officials have been announced for the weekend and it increases our confidence some more, as we have not lost when he has officiated a game involving the Saddlers.
Officials v Northampton are as follows
REFEREE – NICHOLAS KINSELEY
Christopher Husband and Joseph Stokes
Fourth Official: George Byrne
Kinseley has officiated three games involving the Saddlers and we are yet to taste defeat yet – winning one and drawing two.
His most recent game involving the Saddlers came in March 2017 where we drew 1-1 with Charlton at the Valley.
Our solo win came in October 2016 where we defeated Shrewsbury Town 3-2 at the Banks’s Stadium.
Kinseley officiated twenty-four games last season, issuing seventy-four yellow cards, two reds and awarding eight penalties.
