Walker signs for Salford ahead of return from ban

10 januari 2019 17:28

Adam Walker is set to return to action at the conclusion of his drugs ban after signing for Salford Red Devils.

The former Wakefield Trinity prop last year saw a 20-month suspension backdated to July 2017 by UK Anti-Doping, having testing positive for benzoylecgonine, a metabolite of cocaine, following a Super League win at Widnes Vikings.

Walker will be available to play again in March and Salford have secured his signature.

Announcing the signing, the Red Devils described Walker as a "now reformed character" while he suggested he will learn from his past mistakes.

"I've not been perfect in the past. I don't think anyone is," he said. "But you need to learn from your mistakes and develop as a person and player afterwards.

"It's been a tough few years for myself, not being able to play the sport I love on a regular basis.

"I was suffering from some mental health issues at the time, which in turn led to me making a big mistake. I don't want to use that as an excuse. I accepted and learnt from my punishment.

"In my time away from the game, I feel like I've matured a lot. I honestly feel I've turned the corner, I've regained my love for the sport and I'm ready for the next chapter."
