Gillespie In Team Of The Week (8/8/17)

Gillespie In Team Of The Week (8/8/17)

Walsall are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week's action.

The performance by goalkeeper Mark Gillespie in the one nil loss to Bury at the weekend at Gigg Lane was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other most impressive performers in the Football League pyramid.

Explaining the choice - the EFL blurb read.

'Walsall suffered defeat on the opening day of the new season, but goalkeeper Gillespie did his utmost to give the Saddlers a chance. The summer signing denied Bury`s Jermaine Beckford and Chris Maguire from the penalty spot in a memorable debut, but he was helpless to prevent the former from scoring the winning goal.'

It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Gillespie for his recognition.

Full Team:

Mark Gillespie (Walsall), Willy Boly (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Jack O'Connell (Sheffield United), Patrick Bauer (Charlton Athletic), Jodi Jones (Coventry City), Kalvin Phillips (Leeds United), Andrew Shinnie (Luton Town), Garry Thompson (Morecambe), Bobby Reid (Bristol City), James Collins (Luton Town), Conor McAleny (Fleetwood Town).

Manager - Nathan Jones (Luton Town).
