Walsall have today announced they have agreed a severance package with Vanarama National side Chester City for assistant manager Ian Sharps.
Sharps was a first team member at Chester last season before joining their coaching staff ahead of this season.
Sharps has over 500 career games under his belt with notably Tranmere, Rotherham and Shrewsbury.
Sharps will become first team coach at the club and will provide assistance to Jon Whitney, Neil Cutler and John Ward.
Interestingly Sharps helped at the club nurturing our young talent before the arrival of John Ward.
Everyone at Vital Walsall welcomes Ian to the club.
