Interesting piece in the Norwich Evening News about a cycle ride by former Canaries midfielder Jeremy Goss cycling 13,000 miles to Italy to raise money for the blind. It seems Goss got some valuable help from former Fulham goalkeeper Mark Walton:
He paid particular tribute to former City and Fulham goalkeeper Mark Walton, who has accompanied Mr Goss on the ride, driving a back-up motor home and acting as navigator on the 1300-mile journey.
He added: “Wally has been truly magnificent. He’s looked out for me every inch of the way and kept me going when things got tough.”
Walton made 48 appearances for Fulham after signing from Bolton Wanderers in August 1996. He was a regular in goal as Micky Adams’ side won promotion from Division Three in 1996-97 and, after the arrival of Ray Wilkins and Kevin Keegan, eventually signed for Gillingham in February 1998 for £40,000.
