‘The Sentinel’ has this morning revealed that Michael Walsh has signed for Unibond league side Alsager Town.

The 29-year-old defender was released by Vale in May after nine years with the club.

Walsh has claimed to have turned down three league clubs since his release from Vale Park as he does not want to uproot his family from Alsager.

Walsh’s career at Vale was blighted by horrendous injuries, but despite this he was still recognised as the most accomplished defender at the club. Many fans felt that Walsh deserved another season at Vale Park to complete his ten year service and receive a testimonial.

The sad part about this news is that Walsh is far too good a player to be dropping down to non-league football.

  • I’m surprised that none of the div.2 chesh clubs (stockport, chester, macc) didn’t take a punt. Good defender and only asking for small wages.

  • its sad to see him drop down to the unibond league but Foyle was right to let him go. We need stronger players if we want to challenge for promotion.

  • what does this say about his own confidence in his fitness? At 29 he should have another five years left in him at league level. I know he doesn’t fancy moving from Alsager (why?), but if he really wanted to show Vale what we are missing then surely pride would make him take up an offer from a Div.1 club. I wish him all the best, he is a great player when he’s fit, its just a shame that he’s taken this option.
