Bewers Snapped Up On Non-Contract Basis

Posted on: Wed 17 Nov 2004

-THE SADDLERS have this afternoon completed the signing of former Aston Villa youngster, Jonathan Bewers on a non-contract basis.

The 21-year-old had an impressive outing for the reserve team last night in our 2-2 draw at Rotherham United and will be eligble for selection on Saturday as The Saddlers take on Sheffield Wednesday. "Jonathan has done well in training and gave a good account of himself for the reserves last night," said player-manager, Paul Merson. "He is a player that I know from my days at Aston Villa and the coaching staff there rate him, so I am pleased to have him on board.

"He has been capped by England at various youth levels and this could be the opportunity he needs to get his career back on track."

The right full-back, who has represented England at Under-15, 16, 17 and 18 levels, graduated from Lilleshall's National School of Excellence to sign professional forms with Villa in 1999. However, after making just one substitute appearance in almost five years, the Kettering-born defender spent the final two months of last season at Notts County following his release from Villa Park.

-Bewers has been handed squad number 16.
