According to a Saddlers fan on Twitter we are set to announce a friendly against Stoke City at The Banks’s Stadium.

Walsall Director Daniel Mole has supposedly told the fan this afternoon that we are set to confirm our THIRD home Friendly of the summer.

We already have home friendlies against Dutch giants Ajax and local rivals Aston Villa.

Should we confirm the friendly against Stoke then it will be the fifth game to take place on the Banks’s turf this summer with Wolves also facing Ajax and Aston Villa facing West Ham.

Stoke have recently been relegated from the Premier League to end their ten seasons in the top flight.

Following their relegation the club appointed former Birmingham City and Derby County manager Gary Rowett to try and turn their fortunes around.

Tuesday 17th July – Walsall v Aston Villa (7:45pm)
