Halifax Panthers can confirm Alex Walker has linked up with the first-team squad on a train and trial basis.

The fullback left Wakefield Trinity at the end of the season and he will now link up with Simon Grix’s squad for the start of pre-season as he continues to prepare for the 2022 campaign.

Ian Croad, Football Director said: “Alex is continuing to consider his options for next year and in the meantime we are happy to welcome him into our environment. It is a testament to the culture created by Simon and the staff that Alex contacted us asking if he could join up with us to continue his preparations for the season and it will do our group no harm to have another experienced player involved as we gear up for 2022.”

Head coach Simon Grix added: “It’s a good move for both parties, Alex gets to train and compete and we get another quality player in our group which I am sure will drive competition amongst our outside backs until either we, Alex or both of us make a decision.”

Scotland international Walker commented: “I’m looking forward to linking up with some good mates that I have at Halifax and getting some high-quality training in during the off-season with what is a very strong squad full of quality players.”
