Bedeau is quoted on the Official site as saying:
“I have been at Torquay a long time and felt that I needed a new challenge. There were a lot of clubs who expressed an interest in me, but Richard Money did a fantastic job in selling the club to me and one look around the stadium and facilities convinced me that this was the right move.
There is a superb set-up here and, with respect to Torquay, I see it as a step up. I have played a lot at this level over the years and also the level above and want to play my part in helping Walsall get back their League One status.
I just love playing football and will play wherever I am asked to. The start of the season cannot come soon enough for me now”.
It will be interesting to see if Richard Money views Tony as a striker or winger, or perhaps a bit of both!!!
