Former Doncaster right back joins Poachers
New Boston Town signing Tyler Walker has already come up against some big name players in his fledgling career.
He came through the Doncaster Rovers youth system before spending 2017-18 at Southern Premier League outfit Biggleswade Town.
When he made his Doncaster first team debut against Sunderland Under 21s in the Checkatrade Trophy in October, he found himself lining up against £12 million midfielder and England international Jack Rodwell.
He was also part of Doncaster's pre-season programme last summer, setting up a goal for former Premier League winger Gary McSheffrey in one game.
The then Doncaster boss Darren Ferguson said of him: "I have been pleased with him, he has improved in the last two games and I have seen a lot of quality from him, he has set up two goals so it is always pleasing."
The 19-year-old defender is not be confused with Des Walker's son of the same name, who plays for Nottingham Forest.
Walker will team up again with Keegan Townrow, another former Doncaster youngster, who has agreed to stay on with the Poachers.
Boston Town boss Dennis Greene has also persuaded highly-rated striker Cameron Johnson to remain at the DWB Stadium for the 2018-19 campaign.
Brothers James Lambley and Loz Lambley are also expected to return after long-term injuries.
