Profile
Stats
Alfred Walter Fielding was born in London in 1919. Although he had signed amateur forms for Charlton during the Second World War, he joined Everton as a professional at the end of the hostilities.

This caused a furious row between the two clubs as Charlton believed they had first option in the player.

He broke into the Everton first team in the 1945-46 season and went on to make 410 appearances for the Blues, scoring 54 goals.

The inside forward was a brilliant ball player and strategist who ran the Everton engine room with cool authority.

He spent his later years in Cornwall and was involved with the Everton Former Players' Foundation before his sad death in 2008. 

"The Former Players Foundation has been wonderful to me, and they've really looked after me," he said.

"I always got a great reception at Everton and I feel like the prodigal son coming back. It's true what they say you know, once you're a Blue, you're a Blue for life. You take it with you to the grave.

"I'm often asked to recall my greatest moment in football and the reply is always the same...the day I signed for Everton."

Wally sadly passed away in January 2008, aged 88.
