At the age of 22, Walter has found an unconventional route into county cricket but has worked hard to make his way back into the game. After joining the first team in Dubai during pre-season Walter has shown the attitude and quality required to achieved a professional contract.
He plys his trade in the Shepherd Neame Essex Premier League for Hornchurch Cricket Club and rose to prominence at the age of 18 after hitting six sixes in an over. Having been born in Basildon and attended Billericay School, Walter will be keen to progress into the first-team of his home county in the coming weeks.
Walter has since gone on to feature across all formats, although the majority of his match time has come in white-ball cricket. In 2017, he was the leading wicket-taker in NatWest T20 Blast cricket for the Eagles, and he continues to be an integral part of the side moving forward.
