Saddlers sign stopper Jonny Brain

Saddlers sign stopper Jonny Brain

Walsall have today confirmed that they have signed new goalkeeper Jonathan Brain on a one year deal.

The 27 year old was offered a new deal by league two outfit Macclesfield, where he made 125 appearances, but turned it down to move for better quality football at Walsall.

He told the Express and Star: '"The offer from Macclesfield was a bit of an insult to be honest and I knew I could play at a higher level.'

He added: '"Walsall is ideal for me, they have a nice set-up with the new training ground. The manager and coaching staff are very experienced, will develop me and it`s a step up the league.'

Brain is shaping up to be a decent signing and is arguably the most important one of all, as stopper Rene Gilmartin is looking increasingly unlikely to sign a new contract as the days to the new season edge closer.

The players report back to training after the summer break tomorrow and I anticipate it hope it will be all guns blazing!
