He played 21 times for Scarborough before joining Walsall in September 1993.

Walsall player 155. Clayton Ince


Clayton Ince  (born 12 July 1972) is a Trinidadian football goalkeeper who had lengthy spells in the English Football League at Crewe Alexandra and Walsall. He is his country’s most capped goalkeeper with 79 caps for Trinidad and Tobagoto date, his debut coming on 4 April 1997 against Barbados (the game ended in a 1–0 defeat for Trinidad and Tobago).
Ince was born in Arima. Somewhat unusually, he began his footballing career as a defender before converting to become a goalkeeper. As back-up to Michael McComie he played in goal against the then Soviet Union when Trinidad and Tobago qualified for the 1991 FIFA World Youth Championship held in Portugal, although the tournament did not go too well for his team which conceded a total of 12 goals in three group matches.
Ince began his playing career with the Chaguaramas-based club Defence Force, where he quickly established himself as one of the top goalkeepers in the Caribbean. In 1997 he was named as the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation’s Player of the Year, he has also twice been named as the Best Goalkeeper at the bi-annual Caribbean Cup.
In 1999 he went on trial to the Welsh club Wrexham (who play in the English Football League). Although he played well whilst on trial, the club could not afford to offer him a contract. However, in September of the same year he was offered a contract by Crewe Alexandra, which was accepted by Ince.
Ince spent most of his first two seasons at Crewe as understudy to Jason Kearton, the exception being a one-month loan spell at Dundee, during which time he did not actually play. After returning to Crewe in November 2000 he was placed on the transfer list, the only club who actively tried to sign him was Wrexham, whose bid failed due to a lack of funds. He was removed from the transfer list in the summer of 2001 when Kearton left the club, Ince went on to establish himself as Crewe’s first-choice goalkeeper during the 2000–01 season.
After playing in over 200 games for the club, Ince left Crewe in the summer of 2005 following the expiry of his contract. He signed for fellow Championship side Coventry City on a Bosman transfer. He failed to establish himself as a first-choice with the club, serving as understudy to successive loan signings Stephen Bywater and Márton Fülöp.
Following Trinidad and Tobago’s qualification for the 2006 World Cup, Ince made it publicly known that he wanted to leave Coventry on loan to play first-team football. He has stated that without this his place in the Trinidad and Tobago squad for the tournament would be jeopardised; although he was no longer his country’s first choice goalkeeper, the tournament perhaps represented his last realistic chance of appearing at the World Cup.
In July 2006, Ince signed for Walsall following a successful trial spell. Ince received a 10-day ban from FIFA in October 2006 after Walsall withdrew him from the Trinidad & Tobago squad without permission. He became Walsall’s first choice goalkeeper and received the League One player of the Month award in November.

Ince during a game for Walsall
In an interview with Walsall’s official website, Ince stated that he saw the move to Walsall as the springboard to win further international caps, and had indeed regained his spot as Trinidad and Tobago’s first-choice goalkeeper following the retirement of Shaka Hislop and the unavailability of injury-prone Kelvin Jack, who were ahead of him in the pecking order at the World Cup. But following Trinidad & Tobago’s failure to qualify for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Ince had since been considering retiring from international football, stating that it wouldn’t be practical to continue playing friendlies and that he wouldn’t realistically be around for the 2014 campaign.
Ince was named in the PFA League Two Team of the Year for the 2006–07 season, and also named Walsall’s Player of the Season for the 2008–09 season. Ince had become a favourite with the Walsall fans for his numerous displays that have saved the team from losing.
On 6 May 2010, Ince had formally announced his retirement from professional football and also stated his intention to return to Trinidad to work with younger goalkeepers, but returned to professional football with Trinidadian outfit Ma Pau SC and even spoke about a possible return to International football with Trinidad and Tobago.
After a successful stint with Ma Pau as Player/Assistant Coach where he won the Toyota Classic and was named Player of the Tournament, Ince signed a two-year deal with Pro League side T&TEC FC as Player/Goalkeeping coach.

Walsall player 151. Simeon Alexander Jackson


Simeon Alexander Jackson (born 28 March 1987) is a Canadian international soccer player who plays for Walsall in the English Football League One. He has spent the majority of his career playing in England, relocating from Mississauga, Ontario, to South London as a teenager to pursue his interest in soccer. Following a rejection by Gillingham after a trial, he played semi-professionally before making his name with Rushden & Diamonds of the Football Conference. His goal scoring feats for the club earned him a move to Gillingham, then of Football League Two, in 2008. He scored the winning goal for the club in the 2009 Football League Two play-off Final at Wembley Stadium.

In 2010 Jackson was transferred to Norwich City, then of the Football League Championship, and scored the goal that clinched Norwich’s promotion to the Premier League the following year. He fell out of favour at the club during the 2012–13season, however, and opted to join German club Eintracht Braunschweig who were newly promoted to the Bundesliga. Desiring regular playing time, his contract with the German club was mutually terminated in January 2014 and he returned to England.

Jackson has played for the Canadian national team since 2009. During qualification for the 2014 FIFA World Cup he scored a hat-trick against Saint Lucia.

Jackson was born in Kingston, Jamaica. At the age of three, he moved with his parents to MississaugaOntario. Jackson played for his local team in Canada, Sunoco FC. He was invited to have trials with Gillingham, but was rejected by the club. At the age of 15, he moved to England and lived with his grandmother in CroydonSouth London While playing for Dulwich Hamlet, Jackson worked at McDonald’s to sustain his move to England.

He joined Rushden & Diamonds in 2004 and was the club’s top scorer in the 2006–07 season, scoring 20 goals. The next season he was top scorer for the Diamonds in the league, scoring 16 goals, despite leaving for Gillingham in January. He was joint eighth top scorer in the league that season. In 2005, he had trials with Manchester United and Manchester City. Jackson went on a one-month loan to Raunds Town in December 2005. When he left the Diamonds he had established himself as the club’s eighth highest goalscorer, scoring 43 goals in just over 100 games in all competitions.

In January 2008, he signed with Gillingham, a club he had a trial with as a youth player, for a transfer fee of £150,000 on a three-and-a-half-year contract. He made his debut against Cheltenham Town on 2 February 2008.

On 4 January 2009, Jackson scored an equalizing goal for Gillingham in their 2–1 FA Cup Third Round defeat by Aston Villa. He scored both goals as Gillingham beat Rochdalein the 2008–09 play-off semi final, and the 90th-minute winner in the 1–0 win against Shrewsbury Town in the final, as Gillingham returned to League One one year after relegation. Jackson signed for Norwich on 15 July 2010, signing a two-year contract with the club, with the option for another year, in a deal which saw striker Cody McDonald move to Gillingham on loan. He was given the number 10 jersey upon his arrival at the club. He made his debut for the club in a 3–2 home loss to Watford on 6 August 2010. He scored his first goal for the club against Swansea City on 21 August. Manager Paul Lambert has been using Jackson as an impact substitute due to the form and partnership of Grant Holt and Chris Martin. Jackson was given a start against Bristol City, and scored a brace, with a goal in each half at Ashton Gate. Jackson started the next four games again, in favour of Martin.[13] He scored his fourth goal of the season in the 1–0 win over Middlesbrough on 23 October. After a few months of mostly coming in as a substitute again, on 2 April 2011, Jackson scored his first hat-trick for Norwich, coming on as a substitute and scoring three times in the last twenty minutes of the match against Scunthorpe United at Carrow Road. He went on to score the goal that clinched Norwich’s promotion to the Premier League, a late winner against Portsmouth.

Jackson made his Premier League debut on 21 August 2011, as a second-half substitute for Chris Martin in the second game of the season against Stoke City, the game finished with a Kenwyne Jones stoppage time header which resulted in a 1–1 home draw for Norwich. Following his Premier League debut, Jackson began to struggle finding minutes in the team, he did not play a minute of football in the league until 1 October as a second half sub against Manchester United. Jackson made his first start in the Premier League on 26 November in a 2–1 victory over Queens Park Rangers, this was the first time a Canadian international had started in the Premier League since David Edgar on 24 May 2009 with Burnley. Jackson scored his first Premier League goal on 20 December against Wolverhampton Wanderers when he converted a Steve Morison cross one minute after being subbed on. Jackson came on as a second half sub against Fulham on 31 December and scored the game tying goal in second half injury time to earn a 1–1 home draw. In the fourth round of the FA Cup in late January Norwich was drawn against West Bromwich Albion, Jackson came off the bench in the 65th minute with the game being tied at 1–1 and scored the winning goal in the 85th to take the Canaries into the fifth round. After failing to make an appearance for almost a month Jackson returned to the starting line up in a 3–3 away draw on 5 May against Arsenal. The following week, Jackson was given the start again in the final game of the season against Aston Villa, the game ended in a 2–0 home victory with Jackson and Grant Holt as the scorers. Jackson finished the 2011–12 campaign for Norwich having made 22 appearances, starting in 10 of those. He scored three goals and registered two assists, with 34 shots on goal in his debut Premier League season. The club took up the option to extend Jackson’s contract for another year in June 2012, along with David Fox and Elliott Ward. On 25 August 2012 he scored his first goal of the new season in a 1–1 draw at home to Queens Park Rangers. At the end of the season, Jackson was released by Norwich, having struggled to find minutes during his second year in the top flight. On 10 July 2013, Jackson signed for German Bundesliga side Eintracht Braunschweig on a two-year contract. Jackson was previously linked with a move to Championship side Bournemouth. After just nine appearances during the first half of the season, Jackson and Eintracht Braunschweig mutually agreed to terminate his contract on 31 January 2014.

On 1 February 2014, a day after his Eintracht Braunschweig contract was terminated, Jackson agreed to join Championship side Millwall on a deal until the end of the season. He made his debut against Brighton & Hove Albion on 1 March 2014. Jackson scored his first goal on 25 March in a 3–2 home defeat to Birmingham City.

On 18 August 2014, Jackson signed for League One team Coventry City on a one-year contract. On 13 September Jackson scored his first goal for the club and the game-winning goal in a 2–1 victory over Yeovil Town.

After leaving Coventry at the end of the 2014–15 season, Jackson went on trial at fellow League One side Barnsley. On 3 September 2015, he signed a short-term contract that would keep him at the club until 3 January 2016.

Following a successful trial, Jackson signed a short-term deal with Blackburn Rovers on 15 January 2016 to last until the end of the 2015–16 season. He scored his first goal for Blackburn in a 2–1 defeat to Leeds United on 12 March 2016

On 18th July 2016 Simeon signed a two year contract at 1st Division Walsall, When asked why he came to Walsall he said ‘The Boss, told me what they were doing here and what he wanted from me. I was sold’

Walsall player 146. Ronnie Michael Ekelund


Ronnie Michael Ekelund (born 21 August 1972 in Glostrup, Denmark) is a Danish football (soccer) player in theforward position, who played professionally in both Europe and the United States. He won two Danish football championships with Brøndby IF and two MLS Cup trophies with San Jose Earthquakes, and represented a number of clubs, including FC Barcelona and several teams in English football. Ekelund played 21 matches and scored three goals for the Danish under-21 national team and represented Denmark at the 1992 Summer Olympics football tournament. He was named 1988 Danish under-17 Talent of the Year.
Ekelund made his name known when he debuted for the Danish under-17 national team in October 1987. He scored 10 goals in 23 games for the Denmark under-17s, and was named 1988 Danish under-17 Talent of the Year. Ekelund started his professional career with Danish club Brøndby IF in 1988. He made his first team debut at the age of 15, becoming the youngest player ever to appear in the top-flight Danish 1st Division. He represented the under-17 national team at the 1989 European Under-17 Championship, and was called up for the Denmark under-21 national football team in June 1990. Ekelund was a part of the 1990 and 1991 Danish championship winning Brøndby team. He played a total 63 games for Brøndby in all competitions.
He represented the Denmark under-21 team in the 1992 Summer Olympics hosted at Barcelona, where he impressed, and was soon off to defending Spanish La Liga champions FC Barcelona. He joined Danish-Spaniard Thomas Christiansen at FC Barcelona B, the second-string team of the club. Due to league restrictions on the number of foreigners in the playing line-up, Ekelund had a hard time displacing stars like Michael Laudrup, Hristo Stoichkov and Romário in the Barcelona attack. He played a single league match during the 1993-94 season, coming on the field as a substitute and playing 33 minutes, before leaving the club.
Ekelund went to England, to FA Premier League club Southampton in 1994. In the 1994 pre-season, Southampton and Barcelona stayed at the same hotel during a training camp. Before leaving, Barcelona manager Johann Cruyff asked Southampton manager Alan Ball what he wanted as a parting gift. Ball replied “A left sided midfielder”, and the next day Ekelund was ready to play for the “Saints”. Ekelund was an instant hit at Southampton’s The Dell stadium with his skills on the ball, forming a great understanding with English midfielder Matthew Le Tissier, who Ekelund later described as being on level with Ronald Koeman and Romário.[11] Ekelund soon suffered a back injury, and which the Southampton medical team felt that this could only be cured by surgery. As Ekelund refused to “go under the knife”, the disagreement put paid to any hopes of a permanenttransfer deal.
Ekelund underwent brief loan deals with English clubs Manchester City and Coventry City, but injuries limited his playing time there. He was loaned out to Danish Superliga clubLyngby FC, playing four games for the club in May 1996.[3] Ekelund went back to Denmark on a permanent basis in 1996, when he moved to Odense BK. He played two Superliga seasons for Odense, before the club was relegated to the secondary Danish 1st Division. He played one season for Odense in the 1st Division before moving on in the summer 1999.
He moved to French club Toulouse FC in the second-best French league. Ekelund helped Toulouse win promotion for the top-flight Ligue 1 championship, but the manager was fired and Ekelund left the club. During a training session while on trial with English club Bolton Wanderers in the second-tier Football League First Division, Ekelund suffered an injury which forced him out of the game for three months. When he recovered, Ekelund signed with English team Walsall in the third-tier Football League Second Division in December 2000, to play under manager Ray Graydon who Ekelund knew as a coach from his time at Southampton. Ekelund played nine league games for Walsall, scoring once against Bournemouth.[ He was offered a new contract by Graydon, but decided to leave Europe in 2001.
In April 2001, Ekelund transferred to US club San Jose Earthquakes in Major League Soccer, who competed with Colorado Rapids for Ekelund’s signature. Ekelund suffered a knee injury in his first season at Earthquakes, but recovered and soon became ever-present in the starting lineup. With great passing skill and leadership qualities, Ekelund helped the team win the 2001 MLS Cup in his first Earthquakes season. In the following season, Ekelund was named in the 2002 MLS Best XI selection. In 2003, he helped the Earthquakes win the MLS Cup once more, as he scored in the 4-2 win against Chicago Fire. In 2004, the Earthquakes management team changed, and Ekelund was deemed surplus to requirements. In four seasons with San Jose, Ekelund scored 11 goals (five of them penalty kicks) and made 16 assists in the regular season. He also scored a goal and made four assists in the playoffs.
He left the team after the 2004 MLS season, and made the move to indoor soccer in 2005 joining the California Cougars, coached by his good friend and former teammate Troy Dayak. During the 2005-06 season, Ekelund offered his experience to Southampton as a coaching staff member unsuccessfully. He joined the coaching staff of the Earthquakes in 2008 as Technical Advisor, helping with the day-to-day training of the team.

Graham Wilfred Newton (born 22 December 1942) is an English former footballer and manager. A forward, he played for Wolverhampton Wanderers, Blackpool, Walsall, Coventry City, Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic, The Atlanta Chiefs, Port Vale, Reading, Hednesford Town, Worcester City, and Stourbridge. He won the North American Soccer League with The Atlanta Chiefs in 1968. He briefly managed Worcester City in 1973.
Newton began his career with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Blackpool, without making a league appearance for either club. He moved on to Bill Moore’s Walsall, who were relegated out of the Second Division in 1962–63, before finishing 19th in the Third Division in 1963–64. He scored ten goals in 30 league games during his time at Fellows Park. He then scored three goals in eight league games for Jimmy Hill’s Coventry City in a brief stay at Highfield Road. He transferred to Reg Llewin’s Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic, and helped the club to finish 11th in the Third Division in 1964–65. New boss Freddie Cox then took the “Cherries” to 18th in 1965–66 and 20th in 1966–67. Newton scored just three goals in 28 league appearances at Dean Court. He joined American side Atlanta Chiefs of the National Professional Soccer League in 1967. The Chiefs switched to the North American Soccer League in 1968, who were crowned champions after a 3–0 win over San Diego Toros. He returned to England to join Port Vale on a trial basis in November 1968. He played four Fourth Division games and one FA Cup game for the “Valiants”, and scored one goal in a 1–0 win over Lincoln City at Sincil Bank on Boxing day. Manager Gordon Lee then allowed Newton to leave Vale Park in January 1969. Newton returned to the Chiefs for the 1969 and 1970 campaigns, and scored 18 goals in 36 games in his second spell at the Atlanta Stadium. He made his return to England again in 1970 to play for Reading, but did not play a league game for the “Royals”. He later played non-league football for Hednesford Town, Worcester City and Stourbridge, before returning to Worcester as their player-manager for a brief spell in 1973.

Here is a player where there should be information available, however I cannot find out how many games he played for Walsall let alone anyone else.

Harry J. Bates (July 1890 – after 1912) was an English footballer who played in the Football League for Birmingham.
Bates was born in Sutton Coldfield, Warwickshire. An outside right who never turned professional, he played football for Ravensmoor and for Coventry City before joining Birmingham in 1912. He made his debut in the Second Division on 27 January 1912, in a 2–0 home win against Stockport County, and played once more that season and once in 1912–13, but failed to impress, and moved on to Walsall in the 1913 close season. Bates died in Birmingham

Walsall Player 44 Brian Taylor


Brian Taylor (2 July 1949 – 1993) was an English footballer who played in the football League for Plymouth Argyle, Preston North End,  Walsall and  Wigan Athletic.

For a player who played over 216 games for us, there is very little information about him available.
