GRANT IS SADDLER'S SPY

Grant Smith, City's midfield player, at present on loan at Walsall is prevented from playing against City on Saturday by the terms of his loan.

However the ex-Swindon man is helping the
Midlander's cause by giving them the lowdown on City's team prior to the Bescot clash. Grant explains that his loyalties on Saturday are with Walsall, who are desperate for points as they fight to avoid the drop, rather than with City who he now considers safe from relegation. Ironically if Grant aids Walsall to safety, it will almost certainly be at the expense of his former team Swindon, who are right in the middle of the relegation dogfight. Smith has another year to run on his City contract but does not expect to be part of City Manager Gary Johnson's future plans and so hopes to earn a long term contract with Walsall.

Meanwhile Calvin Andrew's loan spell with City has been prematurely brought to an send by injury, the player having returned to Luton without really showing City fans
what he can do.

In other news from Ashton, City will be sporting Puma Kit for the 2006/07 season.The design of the predominantly red home shirts will be voted upon by supporters, but the away kit will return to traditional white shirts, black shorts and black and white socks, a move that is thought to be popular with supporters.
A third kit of all-black will be used when City are away at a club with both red and white in their kit.

It is hoped that the new away kit will be available in June, in time for the World Cup, and the home kit a month or so later.

The contract with Puma will also ensure that City have a range of high quality sportswear and leisure wear on sale at the Club Shop.
