St Albans City have bolstered their attacking options with the arrival of Charlie Walker following his release from National League side Aldershot Town last month.
The striker scored 15 goals for The Shots last season after his arrival from Luton Town the previous summer, but has found first-team opportunities limited this campaign after recovering from an ankle injury picked-up during a pre-season game with MK Dons.
Walker was pursued by a number of other clubs but made no hesitation in signing an eighteen-month contract at Clarence Park and joins up with his team-mates prior to this weekend’s big promotion match with table-topping Maidenhead United.
Saints` assistant-manager Lee Allinson has been a huge fan of Walker and is glad to see him added to the ranks at St Albans City: “It’s a tremendous signing. Charlie has been unlucky with injury but he’s fully fit now and you only have to look at the sides who were in for him to tell you how highly regarded he is.
“He’s the all-round striker. Strong, fast, can score great goals and on his day is pretty much unplayable. He’s the perfect fit for us and once again it shows the intent of the owners and everyone else at the club by bringing someone of Charlie’s calibre here”.
