Sam Walker Signs On Emergency Loan

Goalkeeper Arrives From Championship Side Reading

23 December 2020

Blackpool Football Club can confirm the signing of Sam Walker on an emergency loan from Championship side Reading.

The experienced goalkeeper, 29, joins on an initial one-week deal, ratified by the EFL, following the news that Chris Maxwell is required to self-isolate due to testing positive for Coronavirus.

In line to make his debut against Rochdale on Boxing Day, Walker faced Blackpool twice in the Emirates FA Cup last season, with those appearances amongst the 14 he has made for the Royals to date. 

Prior to his move to Reading in 2018, the shot-stopper turned out more than 200 times for Colchester United and had loan spells with the likes of Northampton Town, Yeovil Town and Bristol Rovers while on the books of Chelsea.
