Alex Nicholls is a versatile player who is at present on the books of Walsall. Alex came up through the youth ranks at the club, making his senior debut in an FA Cup tie against Yeovil in December 2005. He made several further first-team appearances in 2005-06 before suffering a broken leg during a youth game. After returning to full fitness Alex signed a professional contract for the Saddlers in the summer of 2006 and became a regular in the reserves. He re-emerged as a right-sided midfielder during 2008-09 and has since become a useful member of the senior squad, whether playing from the start or appearing as a substitute. Alex was once again a regular in the squad in 2010-11, starting over half the games.
