Walker to prolong playing days

12 April 2011 03:00
Jimmy Walker has vowed to continue playing as long as he keeps enjoying his football as he prepares to make his 500th senior appearance for Walsall on Tuesday night. The 37-year-old goalkeeper enjoyed 11 years with the Saddlers between 1993 and 2004 before returning to the Banks`s Stadium in late October to help boost the club`s League One survival bid. And as Walker gears up to reach his half-century against Brentford in what is a massive game for the Midlands club, he insists he still possesses the same drive and enthusiasm as he has always had. "As long as I keep enjoying it, I will continue," the fans` favourite told Walsall`s official website. "This is a fantastic way to make a living and I get a real buzz from the pressure of playing. I never get nervous before games, I just enjoy the fact I can go out there and do something I love."
