WITTON Albion have announced the signing of striker Dave Walker following his release by league rivals Rushall Olympic last month.

The 30-year-old forward was a spectator for last Saturday’s 4-1 win at home to Stocksbridge Park Steels, agreeing terms with manager Brian Pritchard during a meeting after the final whistle.

Officials at the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League approved his arrival late on Monday.

Walker scored five goals in as many starts for Witton during a loan stay earlier this season, including a double on his debut in a 3-2 win at Worksop Town in October.

He counts Kidsgrove Athletic and Nantwich Town among his former clubs, hitting the net more than 100 times over the past five seasons.
