With four Premier League Clubs on the doorstep, they are often forgiven for feeling sorry for themselves. However, that’s incorrect at the Banks’s Stadium, home of Walsall FC.
Walsall, nicknamed The Saddlers, have existed for a horrible long time – 1888 in fact.
A family club in the centre of the area community, they may possibly not be in the Premier League in a divisional sense but, in a host of ways, they’re along with their game.
In an age where costs are freezing regular football fans out of the game, Walsall supporters can pop down the Banks’s and watch live football for less than £14 for adults and £8 for juniors. Better still, you will find family tickets available at £20 and under-8’s go free. Bonus.
The facilities are top drawer too. The ground has been redeveloped on a number of occasions considering that the club upped sticks from the dilapidated Fellows Park in 1990. New Suites have been built, meaning fans can grab a mouthful to consume and watch the live Sky Sports match at lunchtime before settling down to view Walsall. There’s banter to be enjoyed as fans of most ages, shapes and sizes come together for a pre-match chat.
On the field, things are going well too.
They finished tenth in League One last season and both men in charge – Chris Hutchings (boss) and Martin O’Connor (assistant) both used to play for the club ดูบอลสด. In fact they both captained Walsall before hanging up their boots, meaning they have the club in their blood.
Having players by having an affinity to a club makes a difference. Walsall has that too.
It’s nothing like the Premier League at League One level. These players are in fact human and, shock horror, plenty of them talk to a Black Country or Brummie twang – the only intepretors needed are those who can’t workout what’they dow arf doe sum bostin stuff at the Bonks ‘, dow they? Stick to me if you can…….
To help support fortunes on the field, Walsall have must be innovative off it. They do some really nutrients at the Banks’s Stadium (there’s your translation if you need it).
Walsall Football Club have made usage of their location alongside the M6 by installing giant advertising signs that attract some big players, who advertise their goods to all or any those commuters who travel up and down the motorway – trust me, there’s loads of them. The Suites which are good for a footie fan on matchday are hired out to businesses as conference rooms during the week. It’s even a wedding venue, so lots of young lovers have tied the knot at the Banks’s too……
In order that protects what continues on Monday-Saturday and you’d imagine the great folk of Walsall treat Sunday as each day of rest. Wrong. The innovative Saddlers turn the automobile park right into a Sunday Market which attracts a large number of people every week. Good thinking.
So, with all that going on, you will see why Walsall are pleased with what they’ve achieved and how they’re going about ensuring an even prouder future.
