Walmsley Looking Forward

ALEX Walmsley cannot wait to get started at the Saints.

The 22-year-old joined from Batley on a three-year contract and has already linked up with his new teammates.

“It is going to be a massive jump, it was big enough going from Dewsbury Celtic up to Batley,” he said. “To go up another notch is an even bigger challenge, but that is what I am looking forward to most.

“I am hoping the benefits of full time training will help me. I have never done a full pre-season before because I have always played in the winter going back to the amateur days.

“I will be going into this one completely fresh and I am sure that will do wonders for me. The pre-season regime will be a shock to the system but I am sure it will do me some good long term.”

Alex is six foot 5 and played for GB Students and Dewsbury Celtic before attracting the attention of the Bulldogs.

He continued: “My target this year is to try and break into the 17. I know it is going to be tough because there are a lot of really good players who are already settled.”
