Preston Winger Joins Robins

Email

Phil Parkinson has bolstered his attacking options by signing Preston North End starlet, Ethan Walker on a Youth Loan until the end of the season.

The 17 year old became the youngest player to appear in a league game for North End when he came on a substitute in the 1-1 draw against Aston Villa in December last year.

At the time he was aged 16 years and 156 days.

The winger has since appeared in the first-team in the 4-0 win at Bradford City in the Carabao Cup in August & signed his first professional contract in October, a two & a half year deal that runs until the summer of 2022.

Walker will train with his new Robins teammates for the first time tonight (Thursday) & is eligible to play in Saturday's FA Trophy 1st Round tie at Farsley Celtic
