FORMER Colchester United midfielder Brandon Comley is back in League Two.

The 26-year-old has signed for the Saddlers on a two-year contract, with the deal officially ratified on July 1.

Comley finished the 2021-22 season playing in the National League for Dagenham and Redbridge.


Comley told the Walsall website: “I’m excited and I can’t wait to get going.

“I spoke to the Head Coach and he said he is expecting an exciting season and he is hopeful that we can do good things this year.

“I am not new to the league but every year is different so I am just going to get my head down, work and try to give the fans and the gaffer everything I can offer, whether that is experience in the league or whether that is hard work and sheer determination just to do well for the club.

“I am over the moon to get the deal done and I just can’t wait to get going now.”


Comley made nearly 100 league and cup appearances for the U's during his spell at the JobServe Community Stadium between 2017 and 2020.

The Montserrat international joined Bolton on a free transfer in the summer of 2020, after being one of four senior players to be told at that time by the U's that their services would not be retained past that summer.

Comley played 17 times for Dagenham in the final weeks of last season after leaving League One side Bolton by mutual consent, last November.


Walsall head coach Michael Flynn told the club's website: “Brandon is a great signing for this football club.

“I’ve always liked him, he’s at a good age and has experience of getting promoted out of the league.

“He’s played higher, he’s a current international and I’m delighted to get him.

“Brandon’s very good technically on the ball and I can’t wait for him to get going.”
