Walsall boss Darrell Clarke has today said its time for everyone to stick together as we sit here on the eve of a new season.
The Saddlers begin our first season in League 2 for twelve years and many supporters are hoping for an instant return to League 1.
Clarke told the Express And Star that the only way the club are going to get out of League 2 is by everyone pulling in the same direction.
“I am not going to take any enjoyment away from the fans”
“That (promotion) is what everyone wants to see, that is what the management and the players want to see.”
“We are in League Two. And the only way you get out of League Two is by making sure everyone is pulling in the same direction.”
“That goes for everyone, everyone in the football club, the supporters and the media.”
The Saddlers faithful have had a torrid few years but following the appointment of Clarke and the takeover by Leigh Pomlett, Clarke is pleased with how positive the fans have been this summer and hopes that it continues.
Saddlers fans have shown their admiration for Clarke and Pomlett by snapping up all 1,425 tickets available for tomorrows game and Clarke has said he wants the club to go onto have a good season.
“I think it’s been a pretty positive summer with the changes that have been made. We want to continue that and have a good season.”
Next Saturday we return back to the Banks’s Stadium for our first home game against Forest Green. We have currently sold 3,100 tickets for that game and Walsall chairman Leigh Pomlett wants that figure doubled.
If you have any family or friends that are struggling to find something to do next Saturday – bring them along. This is the start of an exciting new era at the club and we would encourage anyone that hasn’t been home for years, to return.
This is now a club that has ambition and a desire to improve – its time for the town to back their club!
