Midfielder Tom Walker signed from neighbours FC United of Manchester in January 2018 following a couple of impressive displays against us.
Born in Salford, Walker was a part of the Bolton Wanderers academy from nine-years-old, and in January 2015 he made his Football League debut under Neil Lennon at 19. He went on to make a further 17 appearances in 2014-15 and 2015-16 before going on a season-loan to Bury in 2016-17, making 15 appearances.
Walker was released by Bolton and went on trial at Stockport County, where he signed a short-term loan until October 2017. Following that he signed at FC United of Manchester and very quickly became a fan favourite at Broadhurst Park.
Walker went on to make 18 appearances, scoring six and assisting six including the one at Southport which effectively won us the National League North. He made it back-to-back promotions with the club after winning the National League Promotion Final at Wembley.
