Alfred Samuel "Alf" Walker (c. 1887 – 14 September 1961) was an English footballer.

Playing career[edit]

Walker played for Northampton Town and then Brentford, before joining Wolverhampton Wanderers in 1909. He scored twice 35 games for the club,[2] as they posted eighth and ninth places finishes in the Football League Second Division in 1909–10 and 1910–11. He joined non-league Port Vale in 1911, and enjoyed regular football in Burslem, helping the club to lift the Birmingham Senior Cup in 1913.[1] However, he lost his place in October 1913, and after colliding with low railings at The Old Recreation Ground on 26 January 1914 was out of action for some time.[1] He was released at the end of the season and moved on to Scottish side Dunfermline Athletic.[1]
