Saddlers rise to reward fans
THREE lucky Walsall fans got the chance to meet their heroes as the club revealed its brand new third kit for the first time.
Howard Russell, 57, Alfie Taylor, 12, and eight-yearold Callum Cutting won a social media selfie competition run by HomeServe Membership – Walsall’s principal sponsor – by posting pictures online of them wearing the new 2017/18 home or away kits in creative locations.
Their prize was to meet favourite players Luke Leahy and Erhun Oztumer and get their hands on the new all-white third kit from the Saddlers’ kit supplier Errea before anyone else.
Russell said: “We had a fantastic day and it was brilliant to meet some of the players. The new kit looks brilliant and I’m really proud to be the first to get the chance to wear it.”
