Introduction

Josh Walker made his debut in 2012 and is a strong-marking ruck/forward. Walker is the grandson of the Geelong Cats' 1963 premiership player Peter Walker.

 

Season by Season

Season by Season

• Josh Walker arrived from the Cats in November 2015 and was the Lions’ equal leading goal kicker in 2016.

Walker proved his capability in the ruck, pinch-hitting for Stefan Martin when the fellow big-man went down with injury in Round 4. 

Walker spent some time in the reserves in the middle of the season but returned to the senior side in Round 13 and finished off the year well.

 

Season by Season

Round 16 was a massive one for Josh Walker as he claimed a career-high 18 disposals, eight marks (one short of his previous best) and kicked one goal.

Josh Walker kicked a career-high five goals against the Lions in Round 18.

In 2014, he played seven games and booted 11 goals after being elevated to the senior list.

He also booted three goals in 2014's nail-biting semi-final defeat against North Melbourne.

Walker shot to prominence by taking two towering marks in the Cats qualifying loss to Hawthorn in 2014.
