Daggers snap up frontman Walker

Dagenham & Redbridge have confirmed teh signing of 23-year-old frontman, Josh Walker from Vanararama National League rivals, Barnet.

Walker appeared 56 times during a three-year stint at The Hive. He links up with the Daggers following the expiration of his contract. Previously, the player came through the ranks with Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham before joining Hendon during the 2017/18 season.

Speaking to www.daggers.co.uk, boss Daryl McMahon said: “I’m very happy to have signed Josh; he’s another young player to come into our group and we feel we can really push him on and help him to develop. 

“Josh is hungry to do well and to play at a higher level. He’s had a good go at Barnet, and prior to that, he did well for Hendon after having such a good footballing upbringing at Fulham. 

“I’m delighted to have him here, and I think he’s a totally different centre-forward to those that we’ve already got. He’s good one-on-one against defenders, he’s a good dribbler, good at taking people on, and a fantastic finisher. I have high hopes that he’ll do really well and flourish with us.”
