Trialist Eve looking to impress at Walsall

Dale Eve

Dale Eve kept a clean sheet for Walsall reserves in their 0-0 draw at home to Port Vale reserves in a CFL Cup group game last week.

The goalkeeper has joined Walsall on trial and lined up alongside fellow Bermuda player Milan Butterfield against Vale.

Eve made two decent saves in the first half, proving equal to a low drive from Rekeil Pyke before keeping out another Pyke effort from point-blank range on the stroke of half-time.

The 22-year-old has been without a club since leaving non-League side Ilkeston, where he spent the second half of last season playing under manager Shaun Goater.

Eve joined the Derbyshire side a month before Goater, who also left at the end of the campaign, producing several man-of-the match performances during the end-of-season run-in as Ilkeston were relegated.

He also had a brief spell at Dandy Town last season before joining Ilkeston as he looked to reignite his career after being released by Premier League side Stoke City.

Prior to returning to Bermuda, Eve signed a short-term deal at Vanarama National League side Forest Green Rovers, where he had previously had a loan spell.
