Walsall fans are being asked to choose their all-time super Saddler to be honoured on Birmingham’s Broad Street Walk of Stars.
Nine former legends have been shortlisted for the honour and it’s now down to fans of the League One club to pick a winner.
The club have nominated Alan Buckley, Albert McPherson, Allan Clarke, Colin Harrison, James Walker, Ken Hodgkisson, Mick Kearns, Ray Graydon and Tony Richards who will now go head-to-head in an public vote at www.walkofstars.co.uk.
Ex-Birmingham City goalkeeper Gil Merrick became the latest West Midlands football legend to receive the coveted star last week, joining the likes of Aston Villa’s 1982 European Cup-winning team, and all-time West Bromwich Albion top scorer Tony Brown.
Walsall fans must now decide who they think deserves a place alongside other famous names including Ozzy Osbourne, Frank Skinner and Jasper Carrot.
Harrison holds the record for the most appearances, while Richards is the club’s joint all-time top scorer with 184 league goals.
Buckley remains Walsall’s record signing some 30 years after the club paid £175,000 for his services. He went on to become a prolific goalscorer and also managed the club for eight years.
The star will be presented to the winner of the vote during the game against Swindon Town at the Banks’ Stadium on September 19.
Assistant Club Secretary Daniel Mole said: “We are delighted and honoured that Walsall Football Club will be represented on the Broad Street Walk of Stars.
“The players we have put forward are those that our supporters voted for recently when we renamed all the Executive Boxes here at the Banks’s Stadium.
“They are all Walsall legends and any one of them would be worthy of a place on the Walk of Stars,” he added.
The Walk of Stars recognises those who have made significant contributions in the categories of music, television, film, radio, theatre, sport, business and literacy in the West Midlands.
Voting closes at 12pm on Friday September 4.
