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."
