Striker to join club on a two-year contract

League Two club Burton Albion have announced the signing of striker Richard Walker. The former Bristol Rovers player is set to put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal at Pirelli Stadium. Walker is manager Paul Peschisolido's third signing of the summer as the Canadian plots for the side's return to the Football League. The 31-year-old joined Bristol Rovers in 2004 and netted 46 goals in 143 league appearances for the club. Peschisolido told the club's official website: "I am absolutely delighted to get a player of Richard's experience. "He has got an excellent goalscoring record and played at a much higher level and he is a really nice lad. "Richard will undoubtedly add to what we have already got and he will definitely improve us."
