Walker Joins On Emergency Loan

13 March 2021

Oldham Athletic can announce the signing of goalkeeper Laurie Walker on an emergency loan from MK Dons.

His signing comes after Ian Lawlor sustained an injury in training during the week.

Laurie has joined Latics initially for the next two league fixtures, which has been approved by the EFL due to the exceptional circumstances and may be extended next week.

The experienced shot-stopper joined his parent club in July and has helped provide competition for the number one shirt at Stadium MK.

He made his long-awaited debut in a 3-1 win over Keith Curle's Northampton Town in the Papa John’s Trophy earlier this season and, to add to this, he’s also been providing vital coaching to the club's academy goalkeepers.

Whilst at the Sky Bet League One side, he's spent time on loan at FA Cup opponents Hampton & Richmond Borough as well as Robbie Simpson's Chelmsford City and proved his worth throughout these spells.

Walker spent his youth career at MK Dons before signing his first professional deal with today's visitors, Cambridge United in 2009.

The 31-year-old has managed to make over 380 appearances throughout his career, so far, playing for a host of clubs which includes Kettering Town, Oxford City and Hemel Hempstead.

He will wear the #37 shirt whilst at Latics. Welcome to Boundary Park, Laurie!
