JAKE Scrimshaw came off the bench to make his EFL debut as a substitute for new loan club Walsall.

The Cherries youngster played the final eight minutes as the Saddlers drew 1-1 at Bradford City in League Two.

George Nurse gave the visitors a first-half lead, only for Billy Clarke to earn the Bantams a point from the penalty spot.

Scrimshaw, 20, joined Walsall on deadline day last week on a deal until January, his third loan spell away from Cherries having also spent time at Poole Town and Eastleigh.

But this is his first taste of the Football League, something the Isle of Wight-born ace is relishing.

Speaking to the Walsall website, striker Scrimshaw said: "I want to play and contribute as many goals as physically possible.

"I’m desperate to play as many games as possible, but looking forward to competing in the first-team environment.

“I love to score goals but am always extremely hardworking any time I am playing. Work ethic is big for me.”

Saddlers boss Darrell Clarke added: “He’s scored plenty of goals in non-league and is relishing the opportunity to show what he can do at league level."
