Matlock Town have signed goalkeeper Richard Walton for an undisclosed fee from Lincoln City.

Walton, 20, was on loan to Matlock for the last two months of the season and played a major role in helping secure points at the end of the season, as well as developing a good relationship with supporters.

Walton had been with Lincoln City for at least three years but was very keen to join the Gladiators, and CEO Keith Brown said that the assistance by the Management and Directors of Lincoln City regarding this transfer was much appreciated.

Having previously had loan spells with Gainsborough Trinity and Cleethorpes Town, before returning to the Imps, Walton, was an unused substitute in the League Two win over Newport County in late-January.
