Just In: Charlton Athletic has confirmed the signing of another fantastic star

Sam Walker: Charlton Athletic sign goalkeeper on short-term deal
Charlton Athletic have signed former Kilmarnock and Colchester United goalkeeper Sam Walker.

The 32-year-old was a free agent after leaving the Scottish top-flight side in the summer.

He made 28 appearances for Kilmarnock last season and spent the bulk of his career at Colchester, playing 213 times in a five-and-a-half year spell both on loan from Chelsea and permanently.

Walker has agreed a deal until early January with League One Charlton.

Walker, who will provide cover while Harry Isted recovers from a knee injury, has also had spells at clubs including Reading, Bristol Rovers and Northampton Town.

“Sam is a very experienced goalkeeper who will push Ash for the first team shirt while Harry is recovering from his injury and then compete with them both,” Charlton technical director Andy Scott told the club website.

“He has played a lot of first team football at all levels and has demonstrated maturity and quality in the time he has spent with us and gives us excellent cover in the goalkeeping department.”
