Full Name: Reuell Joshua Walters
Squad Number: 76
Date of Birth: 16th December, 2004
Having briefly played for a “Brazilian soccer school” in London until it shut down, Walters had a spell with Peckham Town at the age of seven. He went on to spend two seasons with Unique FA, before being recommended to trial with both the Scum and the Blue Scum.
Following the expiration of his contract with the Scum, he was offered a deal by a number of professional sides, including the Red Scum
, who offered him a schoolboy contract.
Walters joined the Gunners as an under-16 on 19 October 2020. He was called to Arsenal Under-21s by then coach Kevin Betsy in the 2021–22 season as an inverting and overlapping full-back/wing back. He signed his first professional contract with the club in February 2022.
He could be our 8th defender after Saliba, Gabi, White, Zinchenko, Timber, Kiwior, and Tomiyasu.
Assuming Holding and Tierney go.
Should be. I don’t mind Walters, MLS and Nwaneri filling in the last squad spot and training with the first team regularly.
Keep them till January and re-evaluate if rhey could use a loan midway through the season.
Get him on loan at a Championship club. Physically, he’s impressive for his age.
You bet I will. Twitter for that. If it pops up, in here it will be.
With a January recall. If he impresses then get him out to a premier league club at that point.
Defender that played in the last friendly. Very highly rated like Nwaneri so thought I’d make a thread
If you wanted to edit in some nice facts about him that would be good too
Saw his surname and randomly remembered Jonathan Walters for some reason.
Makes perfectly sense. Go on kiddo!
Interesting. Cup and selected home games only though please.
Every game is a pressure game for us. Would be a, bit of a baptism of fire for the kid.
Saka-esque breakthrough pls
