Walsh Signs New Contract

by Mike Taylor

Liam Walsh has signed new contract, keeping him at Everton until June 2019.

The 18-year-old, a technically gifted midfielder who first joined the Academy aged five, has been a regular for David Unsworth’s Under-23s so far this season and has now set his sights on forcing his way into Ronald Koeman’s first-team plans.

Walsh spent time with Koeman and his technical staff during pre-season and has also taken part in some training sessions with the senior squad at Finch Farm in the opening weeks of the Premier League campaign.


And the Huyton-born teenager insists he is more determined than ever to continue impressing after penning his second professional contract at Goodison Park.

Walsh told evertontv: “I am made up. Since I signed my first contract it’s what I’ve wanted. It’s the club I want to be at and the club I want to play for.

"With the new manager coming in and giving me the contract straight away it shows that he has got a bit of belief in me and I want to prove him right.

“I have a lot to thank Unsy for as well, I have worked with him a lot and he has made me work very hard and that is what you need to get new contracts. A lot of other staff through the Academy have helped me along the way and I am thankful to them all.”

Walsh, who has represented England at Under-16 and Under-18 level, made 17 appearances and scored one goal during a loan spell with Yeovil Town last term.
