A talented defender, injuries prevented Walsh from fulfilling his rich potential.

He was signed from Scunthorpe (for whom he had already made 100 appearances) as a 21 year-old in 1998. A tribunal set the fee at £100,000.

He soon showed his potential but Walsh was constantly beset by injuries of all sorts. He played in the 2001 LDV Vans Trophy Final but a series of back injuries started and Walsh was a regular on the physio’s bench.

Nevertheless, his class was such that he remained at the club until 2007 when he was released just one year short of being eligible for a testimonial. It was a sad end to what should have been a glittering football career.
