'Killer' Open To Return

'Killer' Open To Return


Former Walsall striker Kyle Lightbourne has told spoken to Royal Gazzette in Bermuda about his second coaching spell with the Saddlers and indicated that if the deal was right he would return in a permanent capacity.

Lightbourne said "It really went well, but it`s disappointing the team didn`t make it to the play-offs, In the end it was probably too many draws for them. When I got there they won the Coventry game 4-0 and they only lost one game, the last game of the season against Crewe while the rest were draws (Sheffield Wednesday, Scunthorpe and Bury, all 1-1)."

"It was quite intense, in early and finishing quite late, especially if there were reserve games in the evening. We had about eight reserve games during that time, about two a week to catch up. They definitely needed extra hands at that time. Speaking with the manager he definitely enjoyed me being there."

With us on the look out for a new number two it would be naieve not to look at 'Killer', given his succesful coaching capacity plus his legendary status with the club.
