    Former Milton Keynes Dons youth academy product Laurie Walker has left the club to join Stevenage on a two-and-a-half-year deal.

    Walker, 32, who had spent his entire professional career playing at the top end of non-league football, returned to Stadium MK back in 2019 and has operated as the club's third-choice keeper since then.

    The former Dons youth player featured in five total matches for the club while also spending some fruitful loan spells at Oldham Athletic and Aldershot Town - seeing his loan at the latter cut short earlier this week.

    Now, Walker links up with former Dons boss Paul Tisdale, the man who originally brought him back to Milton Keynes, at League Two's Stevenage, with the Boro sat 22nd in the fourth tier of English football.

    The club's official statement reads: "The Club would like to thank Laurie for his contribution during his time as an MK Dons player and wish him every success in the future."

    On social media, Walker himself commented: "Had the best time being back at the club where it all started and I cannot thank everyone at the club for giving me the opportunity and pathway back in to the pro game it will always mean a lot to me."
