Liam Walker topped off a fine trial so far at Portsmouth, with a classy goal in a friendly vs AFC Wimbledon.
After a number of performances which saw him get rave reviews from Portsmouth fans and journalists alike, including a standing ovation when being substituted in a 3-0 victory over Bolton, Liam managed to grab his first goal in a Portsmouth shirt, getting the second goal in a 2-0 victory.
Liam getting a contract at Portsmouth depends entirely on whether Portsmouth avoid liquidation on Friday. However, at the time of writing, things seemed to be looking more positive for Portsmouth, as defender Tal Ben Haim finally agreed to leave the club, with only midfielder Liam Lawrence yet to sort out before tomorrow’s deadline (although with rumoured interest from Cardiff, Lawrence’s future could be sorted as early as today).
Should Liam earn himself a contract, he would join the likes of Tony Macedo and Tim Buzaglo as famous Gibraltarians to play for English clubs in recent history. Macedo played most notably for Fulham in the 50’s and 60’s, where he made 346 appearances for the Cottagers, whilst Tim Buzaglo is best known for a second half hat-trick for Woking in 1991 as they famously upset Coventry in an FA Cup 3rd round tie.
Hopefully Portsmouth survive as a football club, and Liam earns himself a well deserved professional contract.
