Walsall

Walsall have signed former Colchester United and Wales Under-21 defender Lee Beevers on a free transfer.

The 27-year-old featured as a trialist in the Saddlers' 2-0 friendly win over Greenock Morton on Wednesday.

He started his career as a trainee at Ipswich Town and has also played for Boston United and Lincoln City, where he made 185 appearances.

Beevers, who can play anywhere in defence or as a holding midfielder, was released by Colchester in May.
