Dover Athletic goalkeeper Mitch Walker admits he hopes to make move to League 1 side Crawley Town

26 June 2014
by Richard Harvey

Goalkeeper Mitch Walker may have played his last game for Dover, saying he wants to join League 1 side Crawley Town.

Walker, 22, who is under contract at Crabble, confirmed the Reds had made an offer for him and he was hoping the two clubs could come to terms.

He said: “It’s got nothing to do with Dover - it’s a fantastic club and I wouldn’t leave it for any other Conference Premier club.

“I just see it (the move to Crawley) as a step in the right direction for me.

“It’s not about the money, it means I’d be back where I want to be - playing full-time.”

Walker, who signed for Whites from Brighton & Hove Albion in May 2012, said he had spoken to Dover boss Chris Kinnear about the move at training on Wednesday night.

The England C representative said: “Chris knows where I am coming from and understands just how much I want to play league football.”

Crawley’s current No.1 is veteran Dane and former WBA, Burnley and Bury player Brian Jensen.

Walker, the Skrill South Team of The Year goalkeeper, has no concerns about that - far from it.

He said: “It’s a great chance to learn off someone who has played so much football, including in the Premier League.

“Besides, competition is always good.”
