19 year old Christian joined the Shakers during pre-season on a season long loan from Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion. The highly rated keeper joined the Seagulls in February 2013 and signed a long term deal after joining from Plymouth Argyle. Christian started the long road to Gigg Lane as a ten year old at Home Park and progressed through the ranks. Walt’s joined Brighton without making a first team start for Argyle but has made four appearances for the Seagulls after progressing into the first team squad at the Amex.
At 6 foot five, Christian certainly shows a large presence in between the Sticks and has impressed many during his time at Gigg Lane.
