Kelly reveals Walsall striker Peters could return to Bromsgrove Sporting

BOSS Brendan Kelly has revealed he could be bringing back Walsall striker Cameron Peters to Bromsgrove Sporting on another loan deal.

Peters came to the Victoria Ground from the League One club back in August on a three-month loan and made an instant impact, scoring on his debut in a 4-1 victory victory over AFC Dunstable on the opening day of the Southern League Division One Central campaign.

He finished his time with the Rouslers with eight goals in 14 games in all competitions, with his final goal coming in the 5-0 victory over Aylesbury last Saturday, the perfect way to sign off his time with the club.

However, Kelly confirmed to the Standard he has opened talks with Walsall about bringing Peters back but stressed nothing was certain.

“I may be extending Cameron’s loan and I am in early discussions with Walsall about the possibility of a move,” he said.

“I’m unsure yet as to what kind of deal could be offered but I imagine the minimum will be another three-month loan.

“There might be the possibility of having a rolling agreement but we’ll have to wait and see.”

Meanwhile, Sporting cemented top spot in the league on Tuesday night with a 1-1 draw at Thame United, who had enjoyed a 3-1 victory over much-fancied Corby Town just three days earlier.

Jamie Essex had put the hosts ahead in the 83rd minute but Charlie Dowd, who struck twice in the victory over Aylesbury, forced a stoppage time equaliser with a thunderous effort from the edge of the area.

With character being a big talking point following the heavy defeats to Corby and Bedford Town this season, Kelly was quick to praise the never-say-die attitude his players showed against Thame.

“It’s all about showing that mindset of being able to get back into a game,” he said.

“I know we will always create chances so when the chips are down or things are not going our way we have to keep going and the lads did that on Tuesday night.

“Thame are a very good side and came right at us with their aggressive 4-3-3 formation.

“The pitch was huge too. I heard it has the same dimensions of Wembley and Thame knew how to play on it.

“For this time of year the pitch was a carpet and a dream to play on.

“Overall I think a draw was a fair result.”

With no fixture on Saturday, Kelly will be drafting the players into training as well as on Tuesday and Thursday so the players are fit and ready for the following weekend’s home clash against Didcot Town.

The Sporting boss added he may try to get down to watch the fixture between Sutton Coldfield and Peterborough Sports for a scouting mission as the latter visit the Victoria Ground on Saturday, December 8.
