Adam Walker hailed for consistent AFC Telford performances

Award-winner Adam Walker has won praise for being a model of consistency in his first season with AFC Telford United.

The midfielder was a regular in Gavin Cowan’s side after arriving from league rivals Brackley and last weekend was voted players’ and supporters’ player of the season.

The 29-year-old played in 32 of the Bucks’ 34 National North fixtures before the season was cancelled due to the coronavirus. Cowan picked out Walker, alongside fellow prize-winner Brendon Daniels, for their consistent performances.

“He’s a fantastic pro, someone who I knew wouldn’t drop his standards,” Cowan said of his former Nuneaton team-mate.

“Although at times I feel like the team may have done so, it was a very strange season, one I’ve never really encountered.

“There were some fantastic highs, some really strange lows, but to have some fantastic performances not matched by results has proven to be really difficult.

“If you talk about consistency, him and Brendon really epitomise that and they deserve to be rewarded, because they were both so consistent. They’ve demanded standards from themselves and each other as well.”

Walker is one out-of-contract player set for talks with Cowan over his future.
