Walker: I'm an all-rounder

Walker speaks ahead of season opener at Coventry

3 August 2017

Liam Walker says he is 'still progressing' as he looks ahead to the start of the 2017-18 season.

Notts travel to the Ricoh Arena to take on Coventry City and the Gibraltarian international has high hopes for the campaign.

"I'm a very ambitious player and my target is to see the club do well," he said.

"Hopefully we can get promotion this season which is what the club really wants.

"If it was up to me I would say I want to win every game, have our strikers as the top goalscorers in the league and have our players winning awards for being the best players.

"It's a long season, we will work game-by-game, and I hope it will be a promising one."

Having played in Gibraltar, Spain and Israel as well as England, Walker has had a varied career which he thinkS makes him a unique prospect.

"I like to think I'm an all-rounder," he said. "Growing up playing in Spain taught me the technical side of the game and my spell with Portsmouth taught me a bit more of the defensive side and the need to get up and down the pitch.

"The international games are big because we are not a team who have a lot of the ball so it's about game management.

"I'm 29 years old and always learning. I never think I know it all. I'm still progressing as a player."

Walker's career has been heavily influenced by his father and he is looking forward to having his performances analysed from afar.

"Dad will probably come over a few times because he has always stuck with me when it comes to football.

"He's also my agent and has always sorted me out with extra training. I have a lot to be grateful to him for.

"He recently found out about iFollow, which means he can watch all of our games from Gibraltar, so he's subscribed.

"I'm sure he'll be watching and giving me his opinion afterwards!" he laughed.
