Walsall striker Tom Bradshaw says he is hungry for more goals after signing a one-year extension to his current contract at Banks’s Stadium.Bradshaw’s deal with Walsall now runs until 2017, and the 22-year-old is determined to continue hitting the back of the net for the Saddlers after a fine goalscoring campaign last time around.
“I’m over the moon to sign this extension,” he told the club’s official site.
“For me to miss around 20 games last season through injury but still hit 20 goals was a brilliant milestone, but I realise that I have to do it on a consistent basis and I will be striving to reach those heights again. I am hungry to get more goals.”
Bradshaw’s prowess in front of goal helped Walsall to a 14th place finish in the Sky Bet League 1 last term, as well as the final of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy at Wembley, in what was the club’s first visit to the national stadium.
The Welshman now wants Walsall to push on this coming season, and is confident that they can challenge in the upper echelons of the table.
“It was a great year for me personally last season and there is no reason why, as a team, we can’t be challenging for the play-offs this time around,” he added.
“I’m full of optimism and can’t wait to get started again. We showed against the big teams last season that we can really thrive at this level.
“I’ve got every faith that we will be up there challenging at the right end of the table; it’s all about finding that level of consistency and being able to hit the ground running.”
