John Walker (1900 – 1971) was born in Great Wyrley and started playing football with Essex club Barking Town before joining Stoke in 1924. He spent two seasons at the Victoria Ground both of which were poor seasons as Stoke were relegated to the third tier in 1925–26. Walker played 36 times for Stoke scoring once against Stockport County in January 1925 After Stoke’s relegation Walker left the club for Walsall.and he played 12 games without scoring.

John is another of those players where you are not able to find information where ever you search, no one has any information.I tried Walsall History in Essex Street, but unlike with other enquiries they could not come up with anything I had not already found myself. But maybe someone out there will be able to help!
