  • 1996: F.A Cup 2nd Round. Cambridge United 0 Woking 2. A cross, a shot, a fluke? Who cares, they all count! This FA Cup tie against Division 3, Cambridge United at the Abbey Stadium was heading towards a draw, unless somebody "tried something a little bit different". Walker said: "I noticed in the first half the Cambridge keeper came off his line when a cross came over. So when I got the chance I decided to go for it and hit a deeper shot to the far post." In the 74th minute the 39 year old veteran got that chance, when he was given unexpected space 25 yards from goal outside the top left-hand corner of the penalty area. Walker floated in a high, hanging "cross" to the far post, "I looked up and thought if it bends it's going to go in." Bend the ball did, brushing off the post and into the net.
