AFC Wimbledon have won the race to sign 19-year-old left-back Nesta Guinness-Walker from Southern Premier League club Metropolitan Police.
Despite offers from two Premier League clubs, Guinness-Walker decided to choose AFC Wimbledon after being impressed by the club during a trial spell at the end of last season. Shortly after putting pen to paper on his first professional contract, an excited Guinness-Walker said: “I thought it would be a bit nerve-racking coming from a semi-professional environment to a professional environment, but it’s such a tight family club.
“I had lunch with the manager on my first day! You can see from the relationship with the fans that it’s just one big family. I am so happy that I can be a part of it.
“It’s every young boy’s dream to come and join this club, to be a part of it. It’s a great feeling for me to be able to say that I’ve officially done it, the club has welcomed me with open arms. I came and watched the game against Bristol Rovers and I enjoyed everything about the club. I can’t wait to get started.”
