Ginnelly moves back into League One with Walsall
After spending last season out on loan in League Two and the National League with Lincoln City and Tranmere Rovers, Josh Ginnelly has today signed a permanent deal with League One club Walsall following his release from Burnley.
Ginnelly was a Burnley player for three years having moved to Turf Moor from Shrewsbury, and did play and score for the first team in pre-season two years ago but, otherwise, all of his first team action was out on loan at Altrincham, Walsall, Lincoln (twice) and Tranmere.
He was at Walsall for the first of the 2016/17 season. He made just four league starts but played a total of 14 league and cup games for them before returning to Turf Moor. At the time, the Walsall boss was Jon Whitney, but new boss Dean Keates was managing Wrexham for much of last season and will have seen Ginnelly in action for Tranmere who he has already signed Andy Cook from.
Ginnelly has signed a one year deal at the Bescot Stadium and said: “I’m looking forward to it. I’ve known about Walsall’s interest for a while and I knew there was a good chance I would end up back here. The way the manager plays, it suits my style. It’s League One football so I can’t wait to get going.
“I didn’t play too many games during my first spell here but I grew as a person and started to understand more about the game. It was good for me off the pitch more than on it. It was a learning curve for me and hopefully this time it’ll be different.
“I’ve matured and learned a lot since I was last here. I’ve won a couple of promotions and I know about winning things now. I’ll work hard, try to get at players, try to create things and try to score goals.”Share this page :
