Three Under-18s join first team

Walton Casuals have completed the signings of Ellis Wisdom, Bailey Tanner and Calogero Scannella from the Under 18 Juniors Team.

The trio have progressed through the junior ranks over the years, taking the number youth signings under the management of Anthony Gale to seven.

Scannella previously featured under Gale during the 2015-16 season, when he became the club’s youngest ever player making his debut at 16 years, 11 days old.

They follow after Chris Lyttle, Dominic Boman-Flavell, Cameron Allen and Archie Johnson were all promoted to the first team in recent seasons.

Anthony Gale said: “I’m delighted to welcome them all to the club. These opportunities aren’t just handed out and they’ve worked hard to earn the chance to join the first team. They’ll all play a part in trying to move this club forward, and we’ll all try to move those players forward in their careers as well.”

Congratulations to all three and we wish them the very best during their time at the club.
