Three months after signing for Watford, midfielder Josh Walker signed on a short-term loan deal in November 2010 to get some first team action; something the Hornets couldn’t offer him at that time. The young lad came with a wealth of experience to be fair; former club Middlesbrough letting him go out on loan to a number of clubs.
Walker even spent a brief time in the Scottish Premier League with Aberdeen. So, that and the lower league English sides he played for, his experience is well-established. You could say that Walker’s most successful time was on loan at fellow League Two side Rotherham United. While there, he returned three goals in 15 appearances; hardly the worst record for a well-regarded midfielder.
Walker rejoined us for a second loan spell in August 2011. But he again returned to his parent club the following November after the deal was cut short. Watford let him go for good in 2012, with the midfielder moving north to Scunthorpe United.
