Hutchings still hungry for more signings

Hutchings still hungry for more signings

Saddlers boss Chris Hutchings is still not contented with the 5 new signings already on board, and wants at least one more player, ideally in defence.

The team are stepping up their pre season training, with a behind closed doors friendly being played against Barnsley on Saturday.

Hutchings told the Express and Star:'"We`re looking for a left-back or right-back, so we do cover ourselves and one who can play centre back at a push if needs be. We`re just trying to cover all angles.'

Hutchings is trying to avenge the 10th place finish achieved last season, so defence over a striker is his top priority.

He added: '"We let quite a few go and have got a few in. There`s a big turnaround but it`s something which needed to be done.'

The current squad looks like this:

Goalkeepers:

Brain, Bevan

Strikers:

Deeney, Byfield, Nicholls, Grigg,

Midfielders:

Richards, Taundry, Jones, Gray, Marshall, Geddes

Defenders:

Smith, Westlake, Lancashire, Lescott, McDonald
