Walsall on Tuesday went through their paces on the state-of-the-art artificial grass surface, which is next to the Banks's Stadium, with the pitches at the training ground frozen over. Most clubs outside the top flight do not have the same resources as Walsall to fall back on and with a hectic festive schedule fast approaching, Hutchings is delighted to have somewhere to train as the wintry conditions set in. "It's a Godsend for us to have the Field Turf when the weather is poor rather than having to search around local schools, colleges and sports halls," the Saddlers boss told the club's official website. "It's a massive plus for us and ideal to have the option to use it occasionally. It's certainly the envy of many other clubs at this level and above."
