Curzon Ashton are delighted to announce the signing of Sam Walker. The 33-year-old midfielder re-joins the Nash from fellow National League North side, Chorley, 5 years after leaving.
Walker came through the ranks at Oldham before joining Woodley Sports and then Mossley before joining Curzon for the first time in 2011. During his first spell at the club, he would go on to play over 200 games and contribute 41 goals in that time. The midfielder captained the Nash to back to back promotions, including the unprecedented promotion to the National League North in the 2014/15 season. Such was the manner his performances, he earned himself a move to National League side Halifax. During his time at the Shay, Walker won the FA Trophy at Wembley in his only season at the club. His next move saw him at Salford City, once again for only one season, scoring seven goals in 37 appearances. Following from Salford, Walker found himself a home at Stockport County for three years, before joining Chorley this summer following his release – his last appearance coming against Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup last weekend.
We wish Sam all the best in his second spell (well, third, if you include a short loan spell) at the club.
You can see if Walker will be a part of Curzon’s next game against Kettering Town on Saturday on the Curzon Ashton media channels.
